Leicestershire County Council have introduced a new Minerals Framework, that for the first time provides a Quarrying Policy for Charnwood Forest. The previous policy (1991 - 2006) did not allow quarrying in Charnwood Forest.

The new Minerals Framework also allows Mineral Extraction to take place on Green Wedge land, which could devastate the Soar River Valley.

We are calling on Leicestershire County Council to abandon the new Minerals Policy, and replace it with a total ban on quarrying in Charnwood Forest and Green Wedge Land.

We, the undersigned, call on Leicestershire County Council to change the new Minerals Framework to include a total ban on all future quarrying in Charnwood forest and on Green Wedge Land.
