Cilyrychen Quarry is a disused quarry located in Carmarthenshire, Wales. The quarry has been closed for over 20 years, and it has since become a haven for wildlife. The quarry is home to a variety of species, including peregrine falcons, bats, and dormice.
In 2022, a company called Dolawen Cyf applied for planning permission to build a recycling facility at Cilyrychen Quarry. The company claims that the facility will create jobs and help to reduce waste. However, local residents and environmental groups are concerned about the impact that the facility will have on the quarry and the surrounding area.
The campaign to Save Cilyrychen Quarry is being led by a group of local residents and environmental groups. The campaign is calling on Carmarthenshire County Council to refuse planning permission for the recycling facility. The campaign is also calling on the Welsh Government to take action to protect the quarry.
The campaign has been successful in raising awareness of the issue. The campaign has also received support from a number of celebrities, including actor Michael Sheen and singer Charlotte Church.
The campaign to Save Cilyrychen Quarry is ongoing. The campaign is calling on everyone to get involved and help to protect this important wildlife habitat.
Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.
