Chieveley crusher plans back again

Raymond Brown Minerals and Recycling has resubmitted an application to place a material recycling facility at Quarry Copyhold Farm, near junction 13 of the M4.
The firm withdrew its recent application following outcry from the public, and it has returned with a modified version.
More than 300 letters of objection from the community were written in response to the plans for the recycling plant, echoing the fury invoked by waste firm Grundon’s ill-fated plans to build an incinerator on the net plot of land over.
Raymond Brown had a temporary operation at the location and hoped to extend the site in order to build a permanent material recycling facility, capable of processing 50,000 tonnes of waste per year.
The new plans are scaled back to process about 30,000 tonnes of waste per year.
Under the shelved proposals industrial and demolition skip waste, including rubble and concrete, would be crushed by heavy duty machines, and the recycling area would increase by 1 hectares to accommodate the associated buildings.
Consultations on the plans are to end on Thursday, August 16.
A decision is expected to be made by October 22.
