Our Attenborough quarry has contributed to the built environment in and around Nottingham for more than 70 years. Its aggregates have played (and continue to play) a part in local houses, schools, hospitals, roads and much more.
The fact that the gravel processing and ready-mixed concrete operations are on the edge of the village creates a need for close liaison which is carried out by local management on a day-to-day basis but also by a formal liaison committee.
While quarrying continues, earlier phases have been restored to become a popular nature reserve that has achieved Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) status. The145-hectare mosaic of habitats is now home to a legion of wildlife and is much loved by thousands of people from a wide surrounding area who also enjoy its community and educational facilities.
The use of alternative fuels to replace traditional fossil fuels is a key pillar of our carbon strategy as it contributes to significantly reduce our overall CO2 emissions. View
