Bantycock Quarry – future plans

Welcome to our dedicated pages for a proposed southern extension to our Bantycock Quarry near Newark.

In normal circumstances we would invite you to attend an information event where boards are displayed and staff are available to answer any questions. With the limitations of the coronavirus and social distancing, we are not able to run such an event at this time.

Instead, we are running a virtual consultation through this website. We are keen to ensure that, whilst the format may be different, we are still ensuring you have access to all the relevant information and have the opportunity to ask us questions. For more details, click on the Planning Application link.
