Arden Quarry (Derbyshire) - info needed on landfill company

Please can you help with contacts with groups who have been involved in environmental work concerning this company.

They are operating a landfill site in a far from satisfactory manner at Arden Quarry Birch Vale Derbyshire, which started on the basis of change to an old planning permission with almost no public knowledge of what was going on.

They have now applied for planning permission to extend this landfill and Derbyshire appear to want to accomodate them. A community action group is currently emerging, and we know they have sites in Denton (waste reception centre), and landfills at Rawtenstall and Oldham. There may be others we don't know about. I have already been given a contact for Rossendale and would be very pleased to contact others.

Thanks for your help
