0322/16 Proposed Extension to Linhay Hill Quarry

Planning documents can be accessed via the Dartmoor National Park website: click here.

They can also be viewed on the Glendinning website:

Linhay Hill Quarry at Ashburton is a limestone quarry which for over 50 years has supplied a range of essential materials – like aggregates, ready mix concretes, asphalt, blocks, paving, sand and lime – for new roads and highways maintenance, building construction and agricultural use across Devon.

The quarry needs to be extended so that the life of Linhay Hill Quarry and the economic benefits and jobs it creates can be secured for the future. This will maintain current business activity which employs 240 people directly, sustains an estimated 180 further jobs in the wider economy and contributes £6 million a year to the Devon and Dartmoor local economy from the procurement of goods and services.

A planning application has been submitted to Dartmoor National Park Authority to extend the quarry north eastwards where there are limestone deposits under the land we own at Alston.
