A new community group, Park Bridge Action Group, has been formed to set out and deliver an alternative future vision for the Park Bridge and Quarry locality at the junction of the Durris and Drumoak communities.
The Park Bridge Action Group is a response to three major challenges which the community is facing, each of which could irreparably damage our community and environment:-
The prospective permanent closure of the Park Bridge by Aberdeenshire Council, a key part of our Infrastructure and a Category A Listed Asset in its own right;
The extension of the planning permission for Park Quarry despite assurances that it would close after 30 years in 2016 and be re-instated to agricultural land;
The repeated attempts by the Chap Construction Group to seek planning permission for a development of 1500 houses on the site.
