Planning & Restoration

Restoration is not something we start to consider when a quarry is starting to come to the end of its life - it is something we plan and work towards from conception of quarry planning application.

Our devotion and successful approach to restoring the land has not gone unrecognised, indeed Brett was caring for the land as a way of working long before it became a business trend. As a demonstration as to how seriously we take this aspect of activity, often we will run the restoration of a site in parallel to the operating of a quarry.

Brett has won 51 awards and commendations in 47 years for the quality of its restoration and aftercare of quarries. some of our sites now have SSSI (site of special scientific interest) status.

"Brett is continuing to build on its legacy - as custodians of land that is effectively borrowed and

given back with so much added for the local community and future generations." Bill Brett, Chairman
