Montcliffe Screening Opinion

MPG have asked for a screening opinion reagrding extending extraction at Montcliffe for a futher 9 years, rather than transforming it into a Country Park, this year,  as Horwich residents were originally promised.

The four local action groups and RAGE, have written to Bolton Council objecting to the limitations of the Environmental Statement (including the fact there are NO restrictions on HGV movements) and reminding the Council that the previous extension of time was only awarded on the basis that no further requests delaying the restoration would be made.


Meanwhile the recent fundrasing camapign, to fight the Judicial Review on the Pilkington Quarry Extension  has currently raised in excess of £3,000 and donations continue to flow.
