Public Inquiry concludes

The Stonehenge Public Inquiry finally drew to a close at 6.45 pm this evening.
THANK YOU to all those who came and witnessed any part of the proceedings this week; also to those who couldn't come but sent messages of support. It meant such a lot to the OUTRAGE team who have done their best to defend the local area from the proposed gravel extraction of 1.5 million tonnes and 20,000 lorry movements over the next 10 years.
The Inspector, Mr Ken Smith, concluded by paying tribute to the conduct of all those who attended the Inquiry, recognising how strong the feeling was on both sides but despite that, how civil and courteous each side was to the other. He gave no indication as to the speed of his decision. It will certainly take some weeks.
There will be more to say in due course but for the moment, thanks once again ...

Keep an eye on the OUTRAGE website for further developments:
