George Green Mineral Extraction

The operator submitted a mineral planning application and Environmental Statement (ES) to Buckinghamshire County Council. The applications were for mineral extraction, fill with inert materials, and restoration to its current use, agriculture. The site is in close proximity to sensitive receptors including a number of dwellings and commercial horticulture. The noise ES chapter included baseline noise surveys, modelling of the proposed working, processing and vehicle movements to produce noise levels at nearby noise sensitive receptors and assessment and evaluation of the predicted noise levels against NPPF criteria and the development of mitigation measures. The air quality ES chapter included assessment...
