Update on the Sibelco application for sand extraction by dredging ,mineral processing and despatch ref 17/03104/MIN

Today we learn the reason for the postponement of the planning meeting regarding the Sibelco proposed sand quarry in Cranage, which was to be held by Cheshire west and Chester Council at the Dunbar at Winsford this Thursday 21st June, this is due to further documents becoming available regarding the water tables and the possible adverse effects on surrounding areas that will require the planning department to review there recently published report that advised the council to approve the application.

The Environment Agency and the consultants appointed by local farms who oppose the proposal are involved in correspondence we have seen.

As further things develop we will keep you informed.
