Rural economic activity not industrial economic activity
The farmers have been busy in the fields this week bringing in the first harvest of the year. It's noisy and it's dusty and it's part of life in a village. Most important of all, it's for only a few days each year. If the open-cast mineral quarries are allowed then this level of noise and dust will become a daily feature of our village life for the next twenty years.
There's been a lot of discussion in recent months and years about the importance of air quality and its direct link to health. If you are worried about the impact the quarries will have on your health, head over to the testimonies button on our website and let us know about your experience.
