There are a number of key matters that control the feasibility
and the cost of development in quarries and especially those
that incorporate built development
after uses. These can be considered under three headings, hazards, development
issues and benefits.
When considering a proposed after use the technical and environmental
issues of the surrounding area are also considered alongside
that of the quarry site. For example if a housing development
was the preferred after use the location of a motorway nearby
would have to be considered due to the noise pollution and
other issues that would arise from the close proximity of the
Access to faces must be restricted.
