On behalf of our client Aggmax, PDE recently submitted a planning application for the installation and operation of a concrete batching plant, ancillary facilities and access at Lawn Farm Quarry, Wetherden. Following representation by PDE at Suffolk County Council’s Development and Regulation Committee and subsequent deliberation by the committee members, the decision was made to grant permission on the 16 October 2018.
This is fantastic news for Aggmax as it will enable the use of aggregates extracted from the quarry as part of the concrete batching process. This will provide a more sustainable use of material by removing the need for aggregates to be transported off Site for use within the manufacture of concrete elsewhere. With good links to the A14, the new concrete batching plant is perfectly situated to support Aggmax’s existing client base throughout Suffolk and Norfolk.
