Quarrying at Penstrowed Quarry Ceased in 1984, Clarification Issued
NOTE TO EDITORS.
On December 18 an article called Penstrowed Quarry Update was published containing incorrect information.
This came to light after receiving a complaint by Graham Grigg – the site owner who has applied for planning permission to build a caravan park there.
Specifically – Penstrowed Quarry is the name given to the site of his construction firm and Mr Grigg says the quarry there closed in 1984.
This means that the introduction for the story in question which suggests that if planning permission were refused for this proposal – quarrying would continue – is wrong.
Please use this short piece as a clarification on this issue.
QUARRYING at a site between Newtown and Caersws where a holiday park could be built ceased in 1984.
In December, Graham Grigg of GF Grigg lodged an application with Powys County Council to build a site for 89 holiday lodges, informal recreation area, a fishing pond and two other ponds, games room and additional recreation facilities at Penstrowed Quarry.
The Local Democracy Reporting Service is happy to clarify that “The Quarry” is the name for the site Mr Grigg’s construction, plant hire civil engineering and the recycling of inert materials business which is sited on the flank of Maesmawr hill, Penstrowed near the A489 main road.
