QUARRYING AND LAND RESTORATION

QUARRYING AND LAND RESTORATION

Britaniacrest currently extract sand from our quarry in Storrington West Sussex, which we process into various sand products for use in the building , construction and landscaping industries.

  

The extraction of minerals is a temporary land use. Once quarrying has finished the land can be ‘recycled’ or reused through restoration. In many cases, restoration involves returning the land to its original use. However, this is not always feasible or desirable. Through creative restoration planning, mineral extraction offers the opportunity to improve the environment in and around quarry sites or to create new land uses.

The type of restoration will depend on the desired land use or after use and the type of mineral that has been quarried. Examples include:


•Agriculture

•Habitat creation

•Social amenities

•Combined wildlife and social amenities

•Flood storage


Britaniacrest Recycling has recently started on works for a much enhanced restoration scheme, approved by West Sussex County Council, at our Storrington Quarry.  This includes the importation of inert fill material to restore the site to form a country park for the use of the local community
