Inquiry live – week three

It’s mostly outdoors during week three at the Oaken Wood inquiry:

“This week we went on the two site visits planned. Day two of the site visits mainly looked at the heritage uses of ragstone in the area, with another attempt to experience the view of the woods and surrounding landscape. Although seemingly clear and sunny, the view from Bluebell Hill was obscured by a misty haze.

Tour day three included visits to the existing quarry, the woods themselves and a “mothballed” quarry. A blast was organised for that day which after seeing the charges prepared was experienced from inside the house of a nearby resident.

Oaken-Wood

Today (Friday 14th) is for third party representations, where local residents and others will have the opportunity to share their views on the proposal with the Inspector.

As usual we will keep you posted!
