PDE Consulting Limited recently prepared a planning application on behalf of Allen Newport Limited and Frederick Hiam Limited for a western extension to Cavenham Quarry for the extraction, processing, sale and distribution of sand and gravel and subsequent restoration using inert materials.
The application was submitted to Suffolk County Council and validated on 16 December 2021.
The Suffolk Minerals and Waste Local Plan has allocated the extension area for sand and gravel extraction along with the subsequent restoration of the land using inert materials.
Should planning permission be granted, the application will allow for the continued supply of sand and gravel to the local construction market.
Upon completion of the proposed mineral extraction the land will be restored back to an agricultural afteruse with ecological enhancement which will complement the surrounding landscape.
