The Nottinghamshire Minerals Local Plan Background Paper (May 2014) produced for the Nottinghamshire County Council proposes a 300 acre quarry for sand and gravel at Coddington on the north side of the A17 operational by 2023 and excavating for twenty years.  It notes that “surrounding settlements could be negatively affected by noise, dust and traffic”.

Coddington Parish Council’s detailed submission of October 2013 requests that this proposal be deleted.
Newark and Sherwood District Council at the beginning of July 2014 also opposed this quarry because of the impact it would have on the local community.
