County could have more control over large industries in our area

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Opponents of a proposed cement plant in Castle Hayne are one step closer to getting another road block set up in front of Titan.

The New Hanover County Planning Board voted unanimously to recommend changes to current zoning regulations.

Those changes would allow the county to have more control of what large industry locates to the area.

County commissioners now have to approve the measure.

If passed, large industrial plants like Carolina's Cement will have to get a special use permit before being allowed to operate here.

County commissioners are expected to vote on this at their October meeting.
