    The extraction is planned to start on the old Aerodrome from the west end moving east. A large bund (mound of the topsoil removed from the extraction area will be placed around the workings to reduce noise and the visual impact. From Barrowden the bund will restrict the view of the workings all the way to end of Wakerley wood which being retained up to where the footpath currently goes through to the Aerodrome. The access road in front of the wood line will be 1.5 metres below the current level and another bund will placed on the Barrowden side of the access road with hedging on top.
