Details & Location

Limestone quarry located southwest of Cockermouth, near the north western boundary of the Lake District National Park.

Status

Approved 2008

Stephenson Halliday coordinated the Environmental Statement to accompany the planning application for a major twenty five year extension of this limestone quarry.

The practice carried out a detailed assessment of the landscape and visual effects of the proposal, which informed the development of the phased method of working and enabled mitigation measures to be designed as an integral part of the quarrying process.

Effects within the Lake District National Park were a key consideration. Digital terrain modelling and computer generated photomontages illustrated the impacts of the development.
