Blackhills Quarry is Leith’s flagship quarry, located just to the south of Aberdeen, and produces a wide range of aggregates, rock armour, architectural and dimension stone, ready mix concrete and coated asphalt materials.

On behalf of our clients, Stephenson Halliday recently submitted an application to extend the existing quarry into an area to the south. The proposal provides for the release of an addition 6.3 million tonnes of rock, together with a new conveyor to transport the material to the processing facilities within the existing quarry.

Stephenson halliday have been advising Leiths from the inception of the project and have been involved in pre-application discussions with the relevant planning authorities, screening scoping and the production of the Environmental Impact Assessment report. The application has been submitted and a decision is awaited.
