From the Save Gillies Hill Committee:
Important Notice to all Stirling Area Citizens.
 Petition to protect your Health, Safety and Wellbeing.

Please send a message directly to Stirling Council Planning Department opposing a new access road at Murrayshall Quarry, Cambusbarron which in turn, will in all probability allow the quarry to be reactivated inflicting a long term damaging effect on all residents and visitors in the Kings Park, Torbrex and St Ninians areas.
 
Object to Stirling Council Planning accepting an application for a proposed new access at Murrayshall Quarry ref: 18/00735
 
Object to the revival of Murrayshall Quarry, Cambusbarron.
 
- Object to the further destruction of woodland around Murrayshall Quarry Cambusbarron which provides the city with oxygen, improves air quality by taking in carbon dioxide, supports wildlife and florae.
 
- Object to the proposed transportation of quarried products through the streets of Stirling by 20/30 tonne HGV’s for the next 15 to 20 years putting all pedestrians and cyclists at risk.
 
Probable route, POLMAISE ROAD, KINGS PARK ROAD (historic Victorian quarter, conservation area), QUEENS ROAD, DUMBARTON ROAD, RAPLOCH ROAD, A84 or WEAVER ROW, BORESTONE CRESCENT, GLASGOW ROAD, A872.

IMPORTANT!

Patersons’ Quarries LTD has submitted yet another revised application to the Stirling Council regarding Polmaise Road access as part of its efforts to quarry Gillies Hill.
 
If you object to any part of this plan, please post your comments with the council - the final date for objections is Nov. 25. Even if you have written before, please write again!
 
Sept. 15: TWO QUARRIES NOW THREATEN THE HILL. Tillicoultry Quarries has now joined Patersons Quarries in submitting an application and supporting statement for a ROMP Review and Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR). What we know as of today is that both ROMPs [for the whole site] would most likely be considered together and a joint set of conditions proposed by Stirling Council. Permission to quarry was granted years ago; the question now is if quarriers can meet with current legislation to be able to move forward.
