Delegated permission for revised working and restoration scheme at Kirkby Quarry, Burlington Stone

Stephenson Halliday is delighted to have secured planning permission for a revised working and restoration scheme, incorporating surface water management infrastructure and viewing platform at Burlingtons' Kirkby Quarry in Cumbria. 
 
The Section 73 Minor Material Amendments (MMA) application was submitted in May 2023 and secures a deliverable working scheme to continue the quarrying and processing of the world-renowned slate until 2050.  

Working closely with Westmorland and Furness Council and the Environment Agency, the approved scheme makes provision for new and enlarged settlement ponds to benefit the water environment and reduced planning condition requirements. 

Thanks to all those involved, including Hafren Water and Westmorland and Furness Council for the prompt decision which enables Burlington Stone and Burlington Aggregates to move forward with their operations ensuring they are able to continue to supply the finest quality roofing and other construction materials that help maintain the unique vernacular of the Lake District.
