Details & Location

Extension to existing surface mine and restoration of larger Spireslack complex, East Ayrshire.

Status

Submitted

Stephenson Halliday Ltd was initially commissioned by SRG to design a restoration scheme for the Spireslack complex including the infilling of the remnant Grasshill and Spireslack voids. The restoration design recreated a rolling moorland landscape, dissected by steep sided burns, together with a loch and run-of-river hydro-electric scheme. Following this work we coordinated the Environmental Impact Assessment and prepared the planning application for submission to East Ayrshire Council.
