Council investigation continues into suspected illegal quaries

A council investigation into a suspected 12 illegal quarries in the county is ongoing. It`s thought the 12 are operating without proper planning permission. A number of cases are scheduled to be heard in the circuit court.Many of the quarries argue they have been in business since before 1963 when planning was not necessary and therefore they can continue. The council claims some of the quarries have increased their usage at the sites which is causing serious damage to service roads in the area.
