Save Steyning is an action group made up of local people that oppose the creation of a quarry at Ham Farm less than a mile from Steyning Leisure Centre.
West Sussex County Council (WSCC) plans to allow the extraction of 850000 tonnes of sand from this site; generating air, noise and light pollution; significantly increasing Heavy Goods Vehicle traffic through villages in the area and leaving a landfill of inert waste in its place.
Find more info on these plans on pages 75, 76 and Appendix C of the Draft Joint Minerals Plan https://www.westsussex.gov.uk/about-the-council/strategies-plans-and-policies/environment-planning-and-waste-plans-and-policies/minerals-and-waste-policy/new-minerals-local-plan/consultation-and-engagement/
Please sign our petition today and let West Sussex County Council know that you oppose this, we only have until the 17th June 2016 to let decision makers know how we feel. Register your opposition with WSCC directly here: https://haveyoursay.westsussex.gov.uk/strategic-planning-and-place/draft-west-sussex-jmlp-reg18/consultation/intro/view
