Cloburn Quarry Extension 2023

Cloburn Quarry Company has earned an international reputation as Europe’s leading provider of red aggregates.

Cloburn’s red granite is globally acknowledged as having the best combination of colour, surface texture, and strength of all red aggregates.  This UK red granite has been used in sporting surfaces, driveways and as decorative stone.

This proposal is to incorporate the entire operation within a single planning boundary, and encompasses development to the west and north-west securing the longterm future of the quarry as well as providing for its restoration.

Cloburn Quarry Company Ltd is inviting comment from all interested parties, via Dalgleish Associates, for consideration in the finalisation of the planning application.

Pre-Application Consultation Events

Two public events were held at Pettinain Hall.

The first public event was held on Monday 30th January 2023. This was a walk‐in event running from 2pm to 8pm.

Copies of all plans and reports relevant to the proposal were available for viewing and representatives from Dalgleish Associates Ltd and Cloburn Quarry Company Ltd. were available to answer questions on all aspects of the proposal.

At the first PAC event, futher details of the site phasing and production timescales were requested.  Site Phasing and Production Timescales are available here.

A flyaround video visualisation of the proposal was played during the event.  The flyaround is available here – this reflects the original design which has subsequently been updated, as discussed below.

Following the initial PAC event, and informed by further studies undertaken as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment process, a larger screening mound on the north-west boundary is proposed.  This will marginally reduce the proposed excavation area and would be subject to broadleaf planting.  The storage capacity provided by a landscaped mound to the south-west of the site is no longer required and has therefore been removed from the proposals.  It is also now proposed that the current dust storage area to the south is landscaped and planted with broadleaf trees.  These changes do not alter the phasing timescales provided.

The second public event was held on Thursday 2nd March 2023 at 7pm and included the presentation of the updated proposals and a further opportunity for public discussion with the Applicant and representatives from Dalgleish Associates Ltd.  Issues raised, and changes made to the proposal, as a result of the first public event were discussed.

A summary of discussion at the second PAC event is available here.  

Draft documentation is available for consultation:
