ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. (WTVF) — At a meeting last night, the owner of a former rock quarry was denied a permit to rezone some land in Ashland City.

For neighbors, it was a victory as they'd been fighting against the landowner's plans for years.

But Bryan Lewis, the attorney representing Walker Trucking and Excavating, says this is just the beginning.

They're no longer operating a quarry on the land, but he says their goal is to clear it to pave way for a housing development.

Since they can't get permits, they're going around the city to file a suit in Chancery Court.
