Development at Ratcliffe-on-Soar - Operations

British Gypsum will be submitting a planning application for the prior extraction of gypsum from the northern part of the LDO area, for which we have historic mineral ownership.

The site provides the potential for up to one million tonnes of gypsum to be extracted over a 3-4 year time period.

We have been working with the owners of the Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station site, Uniper, to understand how the potential extraction of gypsum can be safely undertaken without impacting existing site operations and future development under the LDO.

We are committed to being a good neighbour and playing a responsible role as part of our local community. Click here to view a selection of local projects we’ve supported in recent years.
