The application for Tyrebagger Quarry at Clinterty, near Blackburn was initially submitted in 2019 but was withdrawn with a total of six objections.

The resubmitted application by RJM Architectural Design on behalf of North East Soil and Stone would create a recycling facility for construction waste materials.

The quarry has been disused for a number of years and has filled with water which would be recycled by the company.

Other sites around Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire have been considered by the company but were not viable

A total of 16 objections have been made so far on the planning application and they have also received two letters of support.

In a statement, RJM Architectural Design said: “Over the past few years our client has considered several sites as possible locations for the formation of an aggregate recycling facility.

“Due to various circumstances, the sites considered have not been viable and our client is applying for planning consent on the site of the former quarry at Tyrebagger.

“A need for an aggregate recycling facility has been identified by our client in the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire area.”
