Orsett Quarry

All the work being done to the East side of Buckingham Hill road is on an Ecological Area to re-home animals ans newts etc from the area south of Walton hall lane where the water area has newts etc at the moment.

The Ecological area should end up like this: Ecological area 

 Having created and filled this ecological area, gravel extraction will begin to the north and south sides of Walton Hall lane. For lorries to cross Walton hall lane traffic lights will be set up for 300 lorries a day to cross the road but NOT to turn into the lane. Wheel washing facilities are to be installed at all road crossings.

All gravel lorries, 300 per day, will exit the main site at the Buckingham hill entrance or a new entrance which is being proposed 80 yards south of the existing entrance.
