At Stephenson Halliday we have worked with both large and small operators who provide minerals that help to sustain our daily lives by their inclusion in household items, or have lower production levels for their specialist businesses. We can offer our clients a wealth of experience and knowledge, including from within parts of this diverse industry, to assist their businesses continuity and help to ensure sustained levels of production.
We build, lead and co-ordinate specialist teams of consultants to deliver bespoke planning solutions and robust EIA in support of continuing mineral working and to provide replacement sites or working scheme variations. Our chartered planning team has particular expertise in coordinating large and/or complex submissions, whilst our team of chartered landscape architects provide specialist input to landscape and visual assessment, in line with best practice guidance and, also, restoration design and aftercare elements of the process. We work in industry-standard software such as LSS in order to dovetail quarry designs with geology and geotechnical best practice. Additionally, we can offer mineral estate management services to all our clients.
All our work is ensured to be ‘Inquiry ready’, knowing that planning consent at a local level is increasingly challenging. Our Directors have considerable experience appearing as expert witnesses at Public Inquiry, the experience of which feeds back into our future planning applications.
