CROFT QUARRY - 'BLASTING' UPDATE

INFORMATION RECEIVED DIRECTLY FROM AGGREGATE INDUSTRIES:

I am writing with regards to Croft Quarry and demolition of aggregate processing infrastructure.

The Company recognises that the planned demolition that took place on Wednesday 19th August at Croft Quarry has caused disturbance to some residents within the local area and we apologise for the concerns this raised.

Explosives were used in this instance as it is an accepted safe way of removing the tall disused structures as part of the restoration of the quarry. The prevailing weather conditions (in particular low cloud) and location of the charges on site (attached to the base of the structure rather than in a drilled hole as is the case in quarry blasting) contributed to the effects being heard and felt more significantly and further afield than usual. We are working with demolition experts who are currently undertaking a review of this controlled method of demolition to mitigate the impacts in future blasts. More »

We put great value on the relationship that we have with the communities we operate in and we always encourage open and transparent communication. In terms of communicating the demolition plans with the wider public, we now recognise that our previous approach was not sufficient, and so in future we will also be letting the community know through extended communication and local media channels.

We would like to inform you that our Croft Quarry will undertake three further controlled blasts this Thursday 3rd September in order to demolish disused structures in a safe manner. » Less

Latest update from Alberto Costa MP

Croft Quarry works update

My office has received the below letter from Aggregate Industries to advise of future demolition works taking place this week and next.

I understand that the next demolition work will take place this Thursday afternoon, so just something for constituents to be mindful of.

I know a lot of constituents were concerned about the relatively unannounced works that took place last week, however I am grateful to Aggregate for taking the feedback received on board and improving their communication accordingly. More »

Hope this will be of some reassurance to residents. » Less
