ESSEX MINERALS DEVELOPMENT

HDA has carried out a review of three mineral extraction sites on behalf of Lafarge to promote them onto the Essex Minerals Development Document, which is being prepared by Essex County Council. The assessment was undertaken adhering to a methodology devised by Essex County Council to deliver mineral extraction sites which would meet their overarching core strategy.

To inform the assessment, HDA carried out ecological walk-over surveys of each site, and went on to prepare illustrative restoration proposals, which include extensive habitat creation and reinstatement of historic landscape features.
