Bantycock Quarry – future plans

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

During August and September 2020 we ran a virtual public consultation, inviting those living immediately around the site to visit these web-pages to view the details of our proposed planning application. Over 400 people visited the site and some residents took the opportunity to make comments.

We took these comments into consideration in the process of finalising our planning application which was submitted to Nottinghamshire County Council in November. One example was amendments to footpaths in our restoration scheme to enable more circular walks.

The application is now available on the Nottinghamshire County Council website (Reference ES/4217)

Extraction of gypsum

We extract gypsum by using controlled explosives to create a series of cracks to loosen the harder deposits. The gypsum is then lifted by excavator to the processing area.
