These notes are intended as a guide. To the best of our knowledge the details therein are correct, but intending purchasers must satisfy themselves in respect of these matters.
The only known minerals retention attaches to Burley Hill Quarry which lies to the east of the larger woodland area surrounding The Ridgeway (known as Big Covert).
Burley Hill Quarry was fully de-commissioned some years ago by site operators Tarmac Ltd. There is no commercial plant remaining on the site.
Documents from Denbighshire County Council show that Burley Hill Quarry only has a licence to operate until 2021 and that, only within the curtilage of the existing quarry. After 2021 the quarry has to be fully remediated and landscaped in compliance with an agreed landscaping strategy and specifications.
Discussions with Planning Officers suggest it is extremely unlikely that consent would ever be granted to quarry the land under The Ridgeway, especially in view of the fact that it is within a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
Please note that this area has been mined for over 200 years and there are a number of historic entrances and clefts visible on the surface, some of which have been fenced. There is no definitive plan of mining activity.
