Norton Town Council has recommended that plans to expand Whitewall Quarry, Norton, are turned down when they go before planners at North Yorkshire County Council.
W Clifford Watts has applied to develop an Asphalt Production Plant at the site.
Following their meeting on Monday, Cllr Ray King, the Mayor of Norton, said:
“In light of supplementary additional information regarding this application, the council voted to recommend refusal on the grounds of the emission and traffic movement on Welham Road and the area.
The Town Council also wishes to receive answers to planning procedures and edification of local residents.”
