Carbon Emissions Reduction Plan at Roke Manor Quarry

Raymond Brown Quarry Products recently worked with Hillside Environmental Services to provide a detailed sustainability assessment and plan to help assess the Roke Manor’s carbon emissions and the proposed quarry extension. The report formed an integral part of the recent Stanbridge Ranvilles planning application which was submitted in April and also provided a number of viable commercial opportunities to further improve the site’s environmental performance over the coming months and years. The extension proposal will also generate a range of other long-term environmental benefits such as overall biodiversity net gain, ecological enhancements and improved water management.

Hillside also identified that Raymond Brown’s Roke Manor Quarry operational carbon footprint was 27% more efficient than the industry standard. RBQP is continually seeking new operational measures and initiatives to improve the efficiency of aggregate production whilst minimising energy use and water consumption. These opportunities will be further assessed as part of the company’s Go Green committee in the future.

New Viewing Platform at Binnegar Quarry

Binnegar Quarry now has its own dedicated visitor footpath and area, thanks to the quarry team building a new viewing platform.

Binnegar’s quarry team have built a wooden decked platform with hand rails and information boards so that visitors can learn about and see the entire quarry operations in action.

Quarry Manager Simon Pinto, said: “Binnegar is such a stunning site and we wanted to build a viewing platform here because of the great views this spot has over the quarry.   

Should any community groups or local residents wish to visit our site, please do not hesitate to contact us so we can book you in for a tour.”
