Planning Permission granted for 5ha Extension to Sand and Gravel Pit, Omagh

Working on behalf of client FP McCann Ltd, Quarryplan Ltd has secured full planning permission for a c. 5ha extension to an existing Sand and Gravel Pit, located near Omagh, Co. Tyrone. Accompanied by a range of technical reports, the planning application demonstrated that the development would be a sustainable form of development and would accord with local and regional planning policy. Having successfully delivered a number of planning consents on the site previously, the planning permission will secure additional reserves at the site for up to 10 years. Following the completion of extraction, the application site will be restored to agricultural use.

The successful determination of the planning application involved effectively engaging with the Council and statutory consultees to reach agreement on issues such as the impact upon amenity and hydrogeological issues. The result of discussions with planning officers and statutory consultees was that no objections were made to the development and the application was approved by Fermanagh and Omagh DC Planning Committee in September 2018 within the statutory major planning application determination target.
