Blackhills Quarry in Leith produces a wide range of aggregates, rock armour, architectural and dimension stone, ready mix concrete and coated asphalt materials.

Stephenson Halliday applied to extend the existing quarry into an area to the south. The proposal provides for the release of an additional 6.3 million tonnes of rock, together with a new conveyor to transport the material to the processing facilities within the existing quarry. We have been advising the client from the inception of the project and have been involved in pre-application discussions with the relevant planning authorities, screening, scoping and the production of the environmental impact assessment report.
