Extensions to Murnells, Magheraglass and Brackagh Sand & Gravel - 10 million tonnes of Sand & Gravel

The recent grant of planning permissions to extend each of the above existing pits has the potential to release 10 million tonnes of sand and gravel in the Mid Ulster District Council area.  As highlighted by Quarryplan throughout the Local Development Plan process, this figure is only a fraction of what is required to sustain the supply of sand and gravel in the Council Area never mind throughout NI.
