Cardigan Sand and Gravel Company Limited is a family run business, established in 1959. They operate a single quarry, Penparc Quarry from which they supply a wide range of washed and graded sand to the construction, sports field, equine and farming industries. They have developed a reputation for supplying difficult-to-find sands to tight specifications.
The Company propose to develop a small extension to the existing Penparc Quarry, located approximately 2.9 kilometres from Cardigan, in Ceredigion, West Wales. The extension area, extending to 0.6 hectares, comprises an area of rough grazing and scrubland, will release c. 595,000 tonnes of sand and gravel.
The area will be worked as an extension to the existing quarry and restored as part of the wider quarry at low level to agriculture and nature conservation uses. More information on how the site will be worked and restored can be found in the Planning Supporting Statement and are illustrated on the Phasing Drawings.
Specialist assessments have been undertaken to consider the potential impact of the development on local residents and the environment. The results of these assessments are presented in the Ecological, Noise and Air Quality Reports.
