Concerning additional further information that has been submitted in respect of the Environmental Statement for the following planning application, Publicity for applications for planning permission, Notice Under Article 15 (1A) of application for planning permission accompanied by an Environmental Statement, Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015 (as amended), The Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017 (as amended), The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning, Development Management Procedure, Listed Buildings etc.) (England) (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020, Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990, The Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Regulations 1990, Application not in accordance with provision of the Development Plan

Application Ref:19/000048/CM  Applicant: M C Cullimore (Gravels) Ltd  Proposal: Proposed extraction of sand and gravel with restoration using site derived and imported inert material to wetland, nature conservation and agriculture (cross-boundary application)  Location: Land at Bow Farm, Bow Lane, Ripple, Worcestershire 

I give notice that on 1 September 2021 M C Cullimore (Gravels) Ltd wrote to Worcestershire County Council submitting additional further information in relation to the Environmental Statement regarding a number of matters including: ecology (including derogation tests and deadwood hibernacula), landscape and visual impact, cultural heritage, best and most versatile agricultural land and soils, transport and highways, public rights of way, noise, dust, arboriculture (veteran trees) and other matters (including matters relating to the proposed concrete batching plant). The County Council are now seeking comments on this additional further information.

On 11 November 2019 M C Cullimore (Gravels) Ltd applied to Worcestershire County Council for planning permission for the above proposal. The application is accompanied by an Environmental Statement. The proposed development does not accord with the provisions of the development plan as the proposal is not wholly located within an identified preferred area for sand and gravel extraction within The County of Hereford and Worcester Minerals Local Plan (April 1997). The development may affect the setting of Listed Buildings, Conservation Area, Scheduled Monument and Public Rights of Way. The applicant is seeking planning permission to extract approximately 1.5 million tonnes of sand and gravel over a total of 11 phases. The land would be progressively restored using site derived and imported inert material to a wetland, nature conservation and agriculture. The applicant estimates the development would take approximately 9 years to complete. The application site straddles the administrative boundaries of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. Parallel applications have been submitted to both Worcestershire County Council and Gloucestershire County Council. The majority of the mineral extraction is proposed within Worcestershire, with the proposed processing plant site and access onto the A38 within Gloucestershire (Gloucestershire County Council Ref: 19/0081/TWMAJM). The County Council sought comments on this planning application between 5 December 2019 to 17 January 2020; 27 August 2020 to 8 October 2020; and 8 April 2021 to 14 May 2021.
