FCC Environment, who operated the Edwin Richards Quarry located behind Turners Hill, have recently submitted three planning applications to Sandwell Council. These applications propose the following at the former quarry site:
- DC/14/57744 – A waste management facility
- DC/14/57743 – Replacement infilling of the quarry void
- DC/14/57745 – A development of up to 281 residental dwellings
Local residents and anyone concerned with the future of this site may be interested in submitting their comments on these applications to the council. You can do this here – enter the application number (from the list above) in the Application Reference box at the top of the page, and click on Search. Information from two public consultation exhibitions that were held in the local area regarding FCC’s plans for the site can also be viewed here. You can also view a Map of the proposed developments and read some Waste management background information. The location of the former quarry is visible on the map below between the two golf courses.
