With over 100 sand, gravel and hard rock quarries across the UK, Tarmac appreciates the impact its operations and activities can have on local communities and works hard to ensure these impacts are minimised.
The way we act and the relationships we have with the people around us are critical to our success. We aim to be part of local communities by engaging regularly via liaison groups, open days and newsletters which are often hand delivered to the community enabling them to ask us questions face to face.
Microsites for our quarries
Having listened to the needs of our neighbours we have created microsites for five of our most significant sites.
- Durnford Quarry (new window)
- Halecombe (new window)
- Nosterfield (new window)
- Cheshire Sands (new window)
- Stancombe (new window)
These microsites showcase:
- Work being carried out at these sites
- Geodiversity interest
- Restoration proposals
- Any Planning Applications in progress
They also give the local community an opportunity to ask questions and raise any concerns they may have, using the local site contact details.
Tarmac's relationship with schools and communities
We regularly host school visits and also go into schools to talk about our industry, why it’s important and to also stress the potential dangers of a quarry as trespass remains a constant issue for the quarrying industry.
