Extension to Quarry Approved in Under 6 Months

Quarryplan recently helped McQuillan Quarries obtain planning approval for an extension to the Company’s existing quarry at Edentrillick, Domore, Co. Down.  The c. 10 hectare extension area, located on the banks of the River Lagan was submitted in March 2020 – just prior to Lockdown – and was recommended for approval by the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council, Planning Committee on 12 August 2020. 

The application was accompanied by an Environmental Statement, Natura Impact Assessment, Mine Waste Plan together with Geotechnical Quarry Designs. 

The planning permission will allow the Applicant Company to extract high PSV gritstone and continue to supply its two coated roadstone plants for the next 15 years.
