Readers of the blog, and the wider Moreton community will be aware that today is the last day for screening, crushing and recycling operations at the Brickworks site in Lingham Lane. Will the operator comply with the planning conditions, cease and restore the site by March 2010? Only time will tell.
This site has been a pain in the backside to local residents since 2002/03, and operations should have ended in September 2008, however the operator used every tool he could, including the appeal process to extend the operation, so today is a memorable day for local residents. I have asked the Council’s Principal Enforcement Officer to check the site to check for compliance with conditions….. Watch this space.
