Casebook: Appeal cases - Waste management. Working hours extension agreed at asphalt plant

An inspector has allowed an appeal extending the period of daytime weekend working at a quarry in Warwickshire but dismissed two other appeals seeking longer hours of operation.

The quarry had operated since the 1800s and was one of two in the region producing highly polished aggregate for use on road surfaces where higher skid resistance was required. The inspector decided that extending the period of working at a coking plant at weekends would be acceptable for a two-year trial period. However, he held that any wider relaxation of working hours and vehicle movements at the site would undermine local residents' amenity.
