B Byfield started this petition to North Yorkshire County Council Planning and Regulatory Functions Committee

We urge the Planning Committee to refuse the application for the following reasons:
- loss of natural habitat, green belt and agricultural land
- impact to the adjoining Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI); the Brockadale nature reserve and Thompsons Meadow
- loss of natural views in a local beauty spot
- the development is opposed by wildlife conservation charities and the local Parish Councils
- the quarry is unnecessary, and there is already a vast supply of magnesian limestone at Barnsdale Bar Quarry, Kirk Smeaton, with an additional application approved  in 2020
- dust and airborne debris surrounding natural habitat, fields, footpaths and roads
- noise pollution from blasting affecting local residents as well as walkers and  nature lovers who are enjoying the reserve for its peace and tranquility
- concerns surrounding contamination of the river Went and water table
- danger to road users, pedestrians and cyclists from HGV quarry traffic

If you agree, then please sign this petition.
(You may also support or object to the application via email to planning.control@northyorks.gov.uk planning ref: NY/2019/0002/ENV)
