Quarries & Nature - a 50 Year Success Story

Mineral Products Association

Submission summary

Our film and publication – Quarries & Nature – a 50 Year Success Story showcases the amazing work undertaken by the minerals industry to deliver better places, and crucially to help nature recovery. It includes a compilation of examples of delivery of nature conservation through extraction, management and restoration of minerals sites, as well as wider work by the industry, all of which requires professional planning expertise. The minerals industry and minerals planning is uniquely placed to deliver nature recovery – which is not appreciated by policy and decision-makers. This award would help spread this message and properly recognise our contribution.
