I have pleasure in presenting to the House a petition signed by almost every resident of the villages of Finmere and Mixbury in north Oxfordshire—villages of some substantial size.

The petition states:

To the House of Commons.

The Petition of residents of Finmere and Mixbury and the surrounding area,

Declares that they are frustrated and concerned at the numerous, repeated and continued apparent breaches of planning control by Premier Aggregates Limited, owners and operators of the Finmere Quarry and Landfill facility. The Petitioners feel that Premier Aggregates appear to flout consistently many of the planning conditions imposed upon them by Oxfordshire County Council as Planning Authority and they are now seeking to appeal against an enforcement order issued by Oxfordshire County Council relating to overtipping of infill material. The County Council seem unable to resolve this situation, which affects the amenity of the villages and residents of Finmere and Mixbury and the surrounding areas.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to take the necessary action to ensure that Planning Authorities, such as Oxfordshire County Council, have effective controls that they can use on operators such as Premier Aggregates Limited.
