Burlington Slate


Quarry Extension and Restoration

Details & Location

Kirkby Slate Quarry, Kirkby-in-Furness, Cumbria


In preparation

Stephenson Halliday are in the process of preparing an EIA for proposals to extend and progressively restore Kirkby Slate Quarry on the edge of the Lake District National Park for Burlington Slate.

Our planning and landscape teams have been working closely with our client to develop the working scheme and phasing plans for the proposal.  We are providing on-going planning advice to our client and are coordinating inputs to the Environmental Statement from a number of specialists. We are in the process of undertaking a detailed landscape and visual impact assessment and will be preparing all supporting planning documentation for the application.

Throughout the process we have led discussions with Cumbria County Council and a number of key consultees such as Natural England.  We have assisted with the public consultation exercise for the scheme, which has included meetings with local parish councils and attending a public open day at the quarry.

The full planning application and EIA will be submitted to Cumbria County Council later in 2015.
