Moneystone Quarry

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

My third petition relates to a very important issue surrounding Moneystone quarry. It is supported by almost 700 letters of objection to Staffordshire county council. It states:

To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled

The Humble petition of the residents and citizens of the village of Whiston in Staffordshire

Sheweth that the plans, if approved, for an extension to Moneystone quarry will have a negative impact on the ecology, quality of infrastructure and quality of life in the area surrounding the quarry.

Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your honourable House will urge the Government to call in the planning application so that a full and proper planning inquiry can take place and thoroughly examine the application in a fair, democratic and accountable manner.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

To lie upon the Table.
