Tarmac receives council approval for plant upgrade
18 September 2018

UK-based Tarmac has received the approval of East Lothian Council to modernise its facility in Dunbar, Scotland. The plans include the installation of a new grinding station and storage silo.

"The proposed mill will replace two existing mills on the site and will be more energy-efficient and quieter than those existing mills," stated the planning officer’s report.

Oliver Curtin, plant manager, noted the benefits of the upgrade and how additional permits are still required. "The plans will allow us to bring the latest technology to our operations, build on our offer to customers and maximise use of the rail network for transportation across Scotland and England," said Mr Curtin.

"We will now work with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency to secure appropriate operating permits. Once the necessary environmental permissions are in place, we will create a detailed plan for construction and operational timescales," he said.
