THE ARRAN BANNER 20 YEARS AGO

Saturday April 25, 1998

Quarry row

More than 70 villagers attended a singleissue meeting about the quarrying of sand from Sannox at Corrie Hall.

Sannox resident Bill Logie asserted that the environment was being degraded and that nobody was doing anything about it. Granted permission for 10 years of sand removal in 1983, under the condition that the operator must reinstate the landscape as they worked it, local construction firm Thomson took over the operation about 1991. With permission having lapsed, and no attempt at land reinstatement having taken place, a new application for a further 25 years is pending.
