The future

Mountsorrel Quarry

Our resource of pink granite continues to be in high demand from businesses in the construction industry.

Our strategic position at the centre of the UK means we can supply projects up and down the country with ease. Using our rail freight depot at Barrow-upon-Soar we are able to transport stone sustainably and efficiently by rail, minimising the use of the highways network.

Crucially, we are able to supply materials to major projects in London and the southern regions which have no hard rock reserves of their own.

To continue providing a consistent, high-quality supply of products to some of the most critical infrastructure in the UK, we need to secure the future of the quarry, which can only be done by expanding it in the coming years.

We are currently in the process of preparing a planning application for a northern and south-eastern extension to Mountsorrel Quarry.

In October 2022, we held a two-week public consultation on our proposals and hosted three public exhibition events in the local area. We are finalising our plans in response to the feedback received and hope to submit an application in the summer.

We will be holding some information sessions in the summer to update the public on our proposed scheme and provide them with an opportunity to meet the team and ask questions.

You will have an opportunity to submit your comments directly to Leicestershire County Council as part of the statutory consultation process once the application has been submitted.

If you have any questions or comments about the proposals or would like to receive hard copies of the materials, please contact Jasmine via
