The owners of the quarry want to site ten six-metre long steel storage containers within a secure compound at the site for use by the general public.

Residents in Kilmington could have somewhere to keep their personal belongings after plans for a storage compound were submitted.

Applicants Mr & Mrs James Bostock, who currently own Kilmington Quarry, want to implement ten six-metre long steel storage containers within a secure compound at the site for use by the general public.

In their application to East Devon District Council, they said: “There is a current need for personal storage containers like this in the area and the present owners of Kilmington Quarry need to make their investment work for them.”

The quarry site currently houses a mix of usable and redundant buildings and a large concrete mixing plant.

The current compound is surrounded by a two-metre high security fence on some sides and steep banking on others.

Prospective customers would have an electronic fob to access the site via electronically operated gates.

District planners will determine the application’s fate.
