Public Exhibition 22nd/23rd July
Proposed Extension to Fairlop Quarry Phase E
(west of Aldborough Road North)

The Fairlop building materials complex – operated bt Brett Lafarge – has been supplying the needs of local construction projects for several years. Extraction is currently taking place in Phase D.

Brett Lafarge is currently developing an application to extract approximately 900,000 tonnes of sand and gravel from the proposed Phase E extension area, west of Aldborough Road North. At an average extraction rate of 150,000 tonnes a year, this would mean a site life (extraction and restoration) of some 7-8 years. The m ineral would be extracted in phases and the site progressively restored – primarily to agricultural use including some biodiversity improvements.

The company is holding a public exhibition in advance of the planning application, so local stakeholders can comment on our proposals.

The exhbition will be held in a marquee in the field adjacent to St Peter’s Church and will be well sign-posted. Please park in adjacent streets and not the Church car park.

Friday 22nd July 2011 4pm-8pm
Saturday 23rd July 2011 9am-12noon

Representatives of Brett Lafarge and its technical consultants will be available to discuss the proposals and answer your questions.

Note: This time last year it was 500,000 tonnes shared with Havering, so where the new 900,000 tonne figure has come from we don't know.
