This quarry is located in Shetland, Scotland. After 20 years of extraction operations a planning application and environmental statement was prepared and submitted for an extension to the quarry to extract 660,000 tonnes over 25 years. Prior to submitting the application extensive studies were carried out covering ecology and hydro-geology due to the proximity of a number of lochs in the surrounding area together with peat bogs. A detailed restoration and aftercare scheme was prepared including the restoration of the present quarry area with the importation of inert waste which will be capped over with peat.
This quarry is located in the County of Caithness in Northern Scotland. The project is for a rock quarry extension to be developed and the the application comprised of a planning application and an environmental statement in support of extracting 150 thousand tonnes of craft stone over 10 years. Forming part of the application was the preparation of an environmental impact assessment addressing in particular the SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) requiring a section of the rock face to remain undisturbed.
This quarry is located in the County of Fife in the central belt of Scotland. The project is for a rock quarry extension to be developed. The application comprised a planning application and environmental statement in support of extracting 5+ million tonnes of rock over 25 years. Forming part of the application was the preparation of an environmental impact assessment addressing in particular landscape and ground vibration issues due to the nearby major pipelines adjacent to the site and an on site wind turbine. In time the quarry will become a country park.
