Hillend Quarry approved at appeal

Appeal allowed and permission granted for an extension to Hillend Quarry, Caldercruix.  Rather than working the previously consented site known as Braehead Farm (adjacent but separate) we undertook a review on behalf of Tillicoultry Quarries Ltd and have now secured permission to work this reserve as an extension to Hillend Quarry.  This will allow the extraction of 20 million tonnes of hard rock over a period of 40 years, minimise potential environmental impacts and facilitate restoration of the total worked area.
