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 will soon be submitting a planning application to Leicestershire County Council (LCC). In anticipation, we are holding three information-sharing events to give residents the opportunity to view our final proposals and ask questions of the Tarmac project team.

The details of the information events are as follows:

  • Wednesday 20 September (14:00 – 20:30) at Mountsorrel Memorial Centre, 105 Leicester Road, Mountsorrel, LE12 7DB
  • Thursday 21 September (14:00 – 20:30) at the Old School Rooms, 3 School Street, Rothley, LE7 7RA
  • Friday 22 September (12:30 – 20:30) at Quorn Village Hall, 64 Leicester Road, Quorn, LE12 8BB

The materials we are presenting at these events are available to download here.

Paper copies of the materials can be sent to your home address upon request.
