Look at the bigger picture

IAM all for the opening of Alton Quarry. I am a mother of a four-year-old child, a resident of Alton, and an employee of Derbyshire Nsf Ltd.

I live close to the quarry and over the past 18 months I have only ever heard noise twice, and there has never been any health and safety issues that I am aware of.

As a company we want to work with the residents of Alton, not against them. Instead of people being against the opening of the quarry they should look at what the area will look like when the restoration is completed it will be a pleasant place to walk and attract wildlife instead in the past a dumping ground for household white goods and garden waste.

People should look at the bigger picture and let a company in Chesterfield give much needed jobs to the area.
