PLANNING  -  Variation  of  conditions  41  &  37  of  101393/005 
Halecombe Quarry.
Quarry want to re-negotiate these two conditions. NRA have gained 
all  the information after only 2 years not the estimated 5,  the 
variation would allow them to get extra information.  It was felt 
that  the PC could not object to the change in monitoring  scheme 
but  Councillors  objected  to the  change  in  the  consultation 
process.  A councillor had requested WRo Status report C03720 and 
C02971 mentioned in the application but these had been refused by 
Wimpey Hobbs.  It was agreed that the PC would write stating they 
had no objections to the monitoring changes but strong objections 
to the change in consultation.                           (CLERK)
