GREEN LIGHT FOR QUARRY EXTENSION
25th April 2019
The life of a Nottinghamshire quarry is to be extended for a further three years after the proposals were given the green light.
Northern Trust in partnership with Hanson Quarry Products Europe has won permission from the county council for the extension to sand and gravel extraction at Newington Quarry.
Land to the south of Newington Road, Mission near Bawtry, has been earmarked for the scheme which will provide approximately 530,000 tonnes of sand and gravel (475,000 tonnes after processing) over a three year period.
The plans for the 61 acre site were voted on by Nottinghamshire County Council’s planning committee at a meeting on Tuesday 23rd April.
The existing planning permission for Newington West allows extraction until June 2021, although the site will be worked out at some point in 2019.
