Sand-gravel operator appeals restrictions on expansion

The owner of a sand and gravel operation near Crofton is appealing a county decision that restricts expansion on the 184-acre site.

The Board of Appeals has scheduled a public hearing for Wednesday, Dec. 9, in the County Council chambers at the Arundel Center in Annapolis.

The owners of Cunningham Sand and Gravel, located near the intersection of routes 3 and 424, already have received conditional approval to expand the existing operation on the site.

But an administrative hearing officer, while allowing a rubble landfill on part of the land, did not grant approval to operate a sand and gravel operation there.

The landfill owners also want to erect less fencing than is required by law and are appealing the hearing's officer's denial of that request.
