Moota Quarry




Quarry Extension and Restoration

Details & Location

Cockermouth, Cumbria



Stephenson Halliday worked with CEMEX to develop a working and restoration scheme for an extension to a Limestone Quarry on the northern edge of the Lake District National Park.

The design process was landscape led, integrating the findings of a landscape and visual assessment into the working and restoration schemes.

Our planning and EIA team liaised with Cumbria County Council and co-ordinated all the Environmental Impact Assessment work. The full suite of supporting documentation included an Environmental Statement, Need Assessment, Planning Statement and planning drawings resulting in a successful decision.
