Illegal Quarrying a growing concern

NEWS GRAPHIC 4A conservation group is voicing concern about the impact illegal quarry is having on the environment.

The issue is highlighted by Chairman of Asa Wright Nature Centre, Dr Judith Gobin.

She made the comment while speaking at the launch of the Friends of Asa Wright in St Ann’s yesterday.

Recently a multi-agency committee presented its report to the cabinet following a review of the sector.

It was suggested that legislation be strengthened to correct weaknesses identified.

A proposal was also given for the establishment of a Minerals Ranger Squad.

Dr Gobin said there are signs in the Northern Range of the negative effects of illegal quarrying.
