Heatons are pleased to have received a resolution to grant planning permission, on behalf of Stamford Stone for an extension to Clipsham Quarry. Releasing the renowned Clipsham Blockstone reserve, a distinguished product that has been used and continues to be used in many prestigious projects.
Other elements of the development include aggregate extraction including flooring and walling stone along with Lincolnshire Limestone, the erection of a stone working factory in order to process the extracted stone and restoration through the importation of inert material.
Key considerations in the determination of the application were the strong demand and need for the continuity of supply of Clipsham Blockstone together with the provision of longer-term benefits for nature conservation and wildlife to complement the SSSI, which abuts the eastern boundary of the extension area.
