Weʼre raising £600 to get professional advice for Colsterworth Quarry Action Group
- Colsterworth, Lincolnshire
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Residents are objecting to an application for a stone quarry which will affect Colsterworth, Woolsthorpe, Stainby and Skillington.
We need a specialist minerals planning surveyor to help us work out our options and approach. This page is to share the cost.
We’ve found a consultant with lots of experience with Lincs County Council and stone quarries in the area. He can help us work out if we can stop it (unlikely as it is a dormant permission); and / or, get strong operating conditions to control traffic noise, dust etc , and whether we can actually get anything positive out of the restoration conditions.
The first payment will be for £600 for a day of his time which gets us a full review of the application, a formal letter to LCC and a follow up meeting.
As things develop we can decide how much more we are willing to spend.
I will manage the money. When we have what we need I’ll pause the giving function and then re-open it as and when we need more.
All contributions welcome!
Many thanks, John

Many thanks to everyone who has supported so far! We are nearly half way. The consultant has written formally to LCC and been in contact with the Planning Officer. LCC think the application was inadequate so they will be asked to make an additional submission. It is likely we will be consulted again in April / May so we'll be ready for that. Thanks again for your help and please encourage friends and neighbours to chip in too.
