Stop the destruction of the environment threatened by Murrayshall Quarry at Gillies Hill Cambusbarron. At this time Gilles Hill Cambusbarron, determined by many as a National Heritage, is under threat by \"Murrayshall Quarry Liaison Group\" who wish to resume removing the remainder of Gillies Hill by Quarrying. The Community Council of Cambusbarron called for every household in the area to write a letter to the press, or their MSP, or their Councillor to demand that the authorities stop destruction of the environment. Gillies Hill is a national asset - it must not be destroyed. You can help by expressing your condemnation of this action by writing to: The Editor, Stirling Observer,40 Upper Craigs, Stirling, Stirlingshire FK8 2DW The Editor, Scotland on Sunday, Barclay House, 108 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh EH8 8AS Your MSP, The Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh EH99 1SP Your Councillor, Stirling Council, Viewforth, Stirling, FK8 2ET The Murrayshall Quarry Liaison Group has not had unequivocal answers from Stirling Council on the local concerns: 1) Have the current proposals for quarrying stretched beyond those permitted by the 1980 /1982 planning consent 2) Have the 1980/1982 planning conditions been changed by the 2002 review made by Stirling Council without consultation with the community council 3)Previous planning conditions ref S/80/116 state at Condition 3:- a) The Developer shall ensure that, throughout the period of extraction, the quarry operations do not create a nuisance to the community or the environment.

    Please, DO NOT ruin this beautiful landscape and the ecology therein. The proposed project will cause massive interference to the lives of animals who have made a home in this environment, causing them deplorable pain and suffering. Find a replacement resource to quench your material greed without needlessly destroying lives.

    I object to the proposed quarry because of the number of heavy lorries that will drive along residential streets that pass schools and parks. These roads are not designed for heavy vehicles. Also the area is historically important and the quarry will spoil the environment around the quarry and along all the streets that the lorries will pass along.

    I object to any quarrying at Gillies Hill, Cambusbarron, Stirling as it would be severely detrimental to the amenity of the area.

    If this goes ahead you will change the entire feel of a village that is the chosen place to bring up children by many families. The distruction to the wildlife and flora and fauna seems unduly harsh given other options available. The area in question is heavily used for a wide range of recreational users that is more diverse than is easily possible in other areas it is an area where generations of children have and continue to learn to appreciate the special connection with the outdoors that makes them rounded individuals. The traffic caused by the lorries is apparently going to have minimal impact given the actual amount of traffic planned I don't imagine that anyone who will have to live with it for the life of the work would agree. Once it has started it will not be able to be reversed what will be lost will be lost. I urge you to consider that this is a special place that should not be lost and the benefit this area has for the greater Stirling community and those from further afield is great.
