Update On Town Farm Quarry, Crowton

Kingsley Parish Council along with the councils of Acton bridge and Crowton have been actively engaged over the last two years in discussions with Cheshire West and Chester Planning Department to bring to an end quarry operations at this site.

There has been no sand extraction nor importation of infill material  to the quarry since 2018.

Work is continuing on the restoration of the site by the quarry operators and preparations to return it to pastureland. In a recent visit, councillors have observed the re-grading of the fields and landscape reformation.

The offices have now been demolished. The weighbridge is sold and will be removed from the site this coming weekend. Some 300 metres of the tarmac entrance road up to the B5153 will be lifted and removed from next Tuesday 2nd December onwards; this will entail some 54 lorry loads & 108 movements. They are designated for a site some 13 miles away so local residents need to be aware of this temporary activity.

This work will effectively close off the site to any further access from the Crowton entrance.
