Oxted Quarry, located on Chalkpit Lane, is a large industrial operation extracting chalk and providing infill for construction waste.
The site is presently operating at up to 120 HGV lorry movements per day. However, a recent appeal decision confirmed that the quarry can operate up to 200 HGV lorry movements per day operating between the hours of 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, and up to 100 HGV movements between 7am and 3pm on Saturday. This can take place for the next 21 years.
Significant concerns have been expressed by local residents about HGV lorry movements and in response, Southern Gravel, the operator of the Quarry, is now consulting with the local community on the future of the site. We are seeking views on the anticipated further increase in HGV movements and whether there would be support for an alternative housing proposal which would result in the closure of the quarry
A public consultation on the proposals will be held on Thursday 14th July 2022, and Saturday 16th July 2022.
