A taxibus service has been developed by
North Yorkshire County Council that passes through the village.
It operates between Walden Stubbs and Eggborough, suitable for
people travelling to Selby.
On 23 April, the Planning Committee of
North Yorkshire County Council discussed the progress made regarding the
complaints against Darrington
Quarries and their interpretation of the planning conditions. The Committee decided to wait for the outcome of trials using
a larger excavator at the quarry. This
is an attempt to reduce the noise from the pecker.
If anyone has any complaints about activities at the
quarry or landfill site, members of the Darrington Quarries Liaison
Committee will be willing to take up any grievances on your behalf.

Earlier this month, representatives of
the village had a meeting with John Grogan MP and the Environment Agency
to try to resolve issues with the Landfill site.
Unfortunately, the meeting raised more issues than were resolved,
leading to a rather heated debate on some matters. The outcome of this is still awaited. However, we now have a promise that testing will be done on
the gas emitted from the site to discover its composition.
This is the beginning of what could be a very lengthy process with
the Environment Agency but progress is being made.
