Tirpentwys Quarry access road

Just under two hectares of ancient woodland is under threat of loss from a quarry access road near Pontypool in Torfaen.

Back in 2016, over 3,000 Trust supporters helped us convince council planners to refuse this road building plan. However, the applicant, Peakman Ltd, appealed the council’s decision and so the case is now in the hands of the Welsh Planning Inspectorate.

Following the conclusion of the recent public inquiry, the planning inspector will make their considerations and produce a report. We’ll keep you updated on the outcome.
