CONSIDERATIONS

Being residents in the local area, we want to give you an insight into the work we’re doing as part of our proposed site restoration to guarantee we reduce any impact on your lives during or after development

Our expert consultants are currently carrying out surveys to assess any potential environmental impact, noise, dust, ecology, heritage and climate change – allowing us to tailor our approach to development and construction accordingly for the most positive outcome.

We’ve already completed a detailed traffic assessment with positive learnings integrated into our design phase, including introducing a number of operational initiatives to further mitigate any potential concerns.

Amber Rock’s diverse facilities will actively encourage longer stays to reduce the number of day trips, while specific check-in/check-out times will be applied to reduce effects of peak traffic flow. We’ll also arrange various shuttle buses to transport guests to local attractions.

Our vision is also about restoring this beautiful setting. Carefully designed to blend into the stunning rural landscape, and to be constructed using locally sourced and sustainable materials where possible, it will deliver minimal visual impact beyond the quarry.

TELL US WHAT YOU THINK

We hope you’re as excited as we are about bringing our vision of Amber Rock to life. Consultation closes on 22nd March 2021 so please get in touch to share any feedback you have.
