Brownfield Consent

Brookbanks is pleased to announce that planning consent has been granted for re-development of the former open cast quarry at Apedale.

The site, which is located to the west of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire on the south-westerly edge of Chesterton, comprises 16.27 hectares of former quarried land (which is at present ‘unrestored’) and grassland. 

Within the site, topography was a major constraint with the land generally falling from north east to south west at an average gradient of 1 in 12.  Coupled with this, the landscape included several man made cuttings and terraces which appeared to be remnants of the former quarry use
