OBJECT Oaktree Environmental Ltd (John Williams)
The area containing our client's site is protected by a historic landscape designation considered sufficient to maintain the unique scenery and sense of place. It is ironic that further development at the quarry may be affected by protection of landscape characteristics that would not have existed but for the mineral extraction industry. The Nantlle Valley is renowned for its slate quarrying heritage and, in an area where good quality jobs may be scarce, extraction and processing of slate provides the basis for job creation to retain local populations in an industry that characterises the area in landscape and cultural terms.
Look to reduce the area covered by SLA 07 to avoid overlap with designated RHL areas.
