6ha Extension to Limestone Quarry, South Wales

Planning Permission granted for 6ha Extension to Limestone Quarry, South Wales

Working on behalf of Green Circle Aggregates, Quarryplan has successfully secured full planning permission for a c.6 ha extension to Longlands Quarry, Bridgend, South Wales.

The successful outcome of the planning application was achieved via pre-application discussions and scoping with Planning Officers and subsequent discussions and negotiations with relevant statutory bodies including Natural resources Wales and the Welsh Government. No objections were received from any members of the public and the planning application was unanimously approved by the Vale of Glamorgan Council Planning Committee in September 2020.

The client is one of a very small number of independent quarry operators in the area. The planning permission will allow the client to continue to serve customers looking for small quantities of aggregates and concrete for the likes for household extensions, garages and smaller private household projects. The development will sustain existing employment for the c. 20 staff at the quarry, maintain local expenditure within the local area and secure the long term future of the quarry.
