Clydesdale Constituency MSP Aileen Campbell has reacted with disappointment to news that Patersons has decided to resubmit new plans for a sand quarry at Overburns. This latest application comes on the back of a previous application being refused by the council and an appeal against this refusal being rejected by the Reporter.

Aileen said:

"If reports about Patersons resubmitting an application are true, then I am extremely disappointed by their actions. Their applications have been given the knock-back by the council, the Reporters and most importantly, by the community. The company must really take the hint.

"The community will be absolutely scunnered to hear about yet another application. Clyde River Action Group led an effective, coordinated and evidence based campaign against the proposals and I will be in touch with them to offer support.

"I will also be seeking details and more information about this latest potentially, very unwelcome development."
