WATER RESOURCES ACT 1991
NOTICE OF APPLICATION TO VARY A LICENCE TO ABSTRACT WATER

Take notice that Robert Thomas Farms, of Haywood Oaks Farm, Blidworth, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, are applying to the Environment Agency to vary licence serial numbers 3/28/70/86/G, 3/28/70/87/G, 3/28/70/91/G, 3/28/70/92/G, 3/28/70/96/G and 3/28/70/97/G which authorises abstraction from the Lower Magnesian Limestone and the transfer to the Sherwood Sandstone for subsequent re-abstraction for spray irrigation. This proposal will allow the transfer of water from the Lower Magnesian Limestone to the Sherwood Sandstone so that it can be “banked” and efficiently re-abstracted when demand merits greater or lesser irrigation. Please note that the amount of water re-abstracted from the Sherwood Sandstone in any one season will never exceed the net volume of water previously transferred to it from the Lower Magnesian Limestone, but not re-abstracted, under this scheme. Abstraction returns will continue to be submitted on an annual basis. Also take notice that Robert Thomas Farms are applying to extend the date of expiry under abstraction licences 3/28/70/86/G and 3/28/70/87/G from 31 October 2007 and 31 March 2008 to 31 October 2008 and 31 March 2009 respectively. Also take notice that Robert Thomas Farms are applying to extend the date of expiry under abstraction licence 3/28/70/92/G from 31 March 2008 to 31 March 2009. A copy of the application and any map, plans and other documents submitted with it may be inspected, free of charge, at all reasonable hours at Haywood Oaks Farm, Blidworth, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire between 19 March 2003 and 16 April 2003.
