Answers to common questions about Walleys Quarry
Why are the lorries parking on the roads before the site opens?
The parking of vehicles on the highways has been raised with the operator. This is controlled by Staffordshire County Council through the planning permission.
The landfill facility opens at 7am. The operator has advised that they have contacted the companies who deliver waste and requested they do not park outside the site before the sites is open. If they observe vehicles parking on the roads adjacent to the site during the day, they are requesting they move on.
In July 2022, Walleys Quarry Limited submitted a planning application to Staffordshire County Council to allow waste carrying vehicles to park on the internal haul road between 06:00 and 07:00 Monday to Friday (excluding Bank and Public Holidays).
