The Parish Council has been informed by Ibstock Bricks that they wish to extract clay from the field behind Hempstead House Hotel on 6th May for a one day trial.

This extraction which is in accordance with their existing planning permission will involve the use of an excavator and 25 eight wheel lorries. The lorries will be loaded before making their way to Ashdown and return for a second load. So all in all there will be 50 lorry movements in and out of the site during the day.

Because of market conditions Ibstock Bricks have informed the Parish Council that as per last year they may not utilise their full entitlement of extractions as permitted but would let us know in advance when subsequent extractions are likely to take place.
