Registered quarries

Section 261 of the Planning and Development Act 2000, deals with the control of quarries. All quarries, other than those for which planning permission has been granted within 5 years of Section 261 being commenced, were required to register with the council. Failure to register resulted in the quarry being deemed unauthorised and subject to enforcement proceedings, irrespective of the previous legal status of the operation.
