"It is inconceivable that Patersons should be allowed to extract sand and gravel on a flood plain. The only people that will gain from this are Patersons and the landowner to the detriment of the local community and in particular the beautiful River Clyde."
"This company wants to rape some of South Lanarkshire's loveliest countryside. Dust and noise, fumes and death of wildlife, a hole bigger than Biggar, road safety and pollution - these were amongst the reasons for the democratic defeat by councillors who listened."
Chairman of Biggar and District Civic Society
