Completing Extraction Of Aggregates From An Old Quarry
Site Owners Tarmac PLC chose Land Logical to undertake the final phases of mineral extraction and restoration of a sand and gravel quarry, comprising an area of some 11 hectares (27 acres).
Geological survey revealed a winnable reserve of some 210,00 tonnes of aggregates. A phased scheme has been approved, including a restoration incorporating habitats for nature conservation, water bodies, reedbeds, woodland and species rich meadows. Challenges to getting the site operational again after lying dormant for over 30 yrs include addressing planning and logistical issues.
