Tytherington Quarry Public Drop-in Consultation Event

Tytherington Village Hall

· Heidelberg Materials UK is holding a public drop-in event on plans to access additional reserves within Tytherington quarry’s existing planning boundaries.

· Event is being held on 06 March between 12.00 and 20.00 at Tytherington Village Hall.

· Feedback from local people will help shape final plans, to be submitted to South Gloucestershire Council this spring.

Heidelberg Materials UK is holding a public drop-in event to set out its plans to access additional limestone reserves within the existing planning boundaries at its Tytherington quarry in South Gloucestershire.

The consultation event is being held on Wednesday 06 March 2024 from 12.00 until 20.00 at Tytherington Village Hall, Itchington Road, GL12 8QE. It will provide local people with the opportunity to talk to members of the company’s development team and provide feedback on the proposals ahead of an application being submitted to South Gloucestershire Council this spring.

Tytherington quarry has been supplying much-need building materials for nearly 100 years. To make the most of existing reserves, Heidelberg Materials (formerly Hanson UK) is now seeking permission to extract additional limestone from within the quarry’s existing planning boundaries.

This would see the deepening of the Woodleaze area as well as the extraction of material from the southern part of the quarry, under the existing soil store. Combined, this would provide around six million tonnes of additional limestone, to be extracted within the existing consented timeframes.

Trystan Mabbitt, Consenting & Development Manager at Heidelberg Materials UK, said: “Limestone from Tytherington is recognised as a significant resource that is vital for the construction and maintenance of homes, schools, hospitals and roads.

“If our proposals are approved, it will allow us to make the most sustainable use of existing reserves. Beyond the quarry gate our neighbours will see little change as a result of this application and, for us, it would be business as usual.

“We look forward to welcoming local people to our exhibition, answering any questions they may have and listening to feedback that can help us shape our final plans.”
