New Restoration proposals for South Thoresby Quarry

Date: December/19/2016

Our planning team has secured consent to improve a scheme of  restoration for South Thoresby Quarry located in Lincolnshire.

 

GBM Waste Management instructed our planning team to vary the existing planning consent to extend the time allowed to extract the remaining mineral reserves, and to enable an improved restoration scheme to be implemented for the quarry.

The amended restoration plan will progress over a 28 year period, and will maximise biodiversity and landscape enhancements via native woodland and wet woodland planting, introducing calcareous grassland and provision of a new habitat pond.

In addition to preparation of the planning documentation and liaison with the Planning Authority, additional works undertaken include:

Habitat assessment;

Flood risk assessment;

Landform contour 3D modelling: and

Materials balance assessment.
