We the undersigned OBJECT to the planning application 18/00735/FUL of 31 Oct 2018 "Creation of a new access track from Polmaise Road to the south eastern corner of Murrayshall Quarry, settlement ponds along the line of the new access track, soil bunds, a public car park and a segregated woodland footpath running parallel to Polmaise Road | Murrayshall Quarry Polmaise Road To Carron Reservoir Stirling."

We object to the revival of Murrayshall Quarry, Cambusbarron.

We object to the further destruction of woodland around Murrayshall Quarry, Cambusbarron which provides the city with oxygen, improves air quality by taking in carbon dioxide, supports wildlife and flora.

We object to the proposed transportation of quarried products through the streets of Stirling by 20/30 tonne HGV’s for the next 15 to 20 years putting all pedestrians and cyclists at risk.

We object to a substantial increase in CO2 emissions in our local environment.

We object to the detrimental impact an active quarry and transportation of its goods through our roads will have on our Environment, Health, Safety and Wellbeing.

We object to the possible devaluation of local homes as relentless HGV’s run by.

We object to the dishonouring of one of the most iconic historical sites in Scotland: the site where Robert the Bruce placed his sma' folk or ghillies during the Battle of Bannockburn, the Hill that contains two Iron Age forts, early 19th century lime-kilns, a myriad of limestone tunnels; and the ruins of Polmaise Castle.
