Improve the local road system as soon as possible and remove the proposed quarry site at Coddington from the Draft County Minerals Plan

We, the undersigned, are gravely concerned at the impact of increasing traffic in the Newark area.

There is locally a growing anger:

  • at the frequent delays in journeys affecting both residents and businesses;
  • at diversions through minor roads not designed for heavy traffic; and
  • at the incidence of accidents, of which this area in 2014 suffered the highest number in Nottinghamshire. 

New housing estates are adding to our anxieties as is the potential threat of locating a major sand and gravel quarry at Coddington on the A17. 

We ask the relevant authorities to recognize the gravity of our concerns by improving the local road system as soon as possible and deleting the proposed quarry site at Coddington from the Draft County Minerals Plan.
