Availability of this quarry provides an exciting business opportunity for an investor, developer, builder or other commercial user to acquire a working quarry with a substantial amount of material 'in situ'.
The site has been worked for the last 40 or so years, but on an informal basis and still retains capacity for commercial operation with extensive stock of quality "Bwlchllan" type building and road stone and extensive utilisable deposits of shale and top soil on site.
The site is easily accessible for hgv access and is fully licensed and benefits Planning Consent from the Local Authority for use.
The site has useful end user commercial possibilities for utilisation as a yard or depot.
This is an extensive quarry, which has been been utilised by the existing owners on a casual basis for local needs and local businesses for many years and not operated commercially.
The opportunity has now arisen for a commercial operator to acquire the premises with the opportunity of working the quarry under the existing planning consent as approved, under Ceredigion Planning Consent Application No: 981128 mn, and for extraction of shale, extension to existing quarry as approved 15th March 1999.
No building stone has been extracted from the quarry for the last 12 or so years, but shale has been removed towards the end of 2018/2019 for farm road use.
There is a substantial tonnage on site for further extraction benefit to the end user and in our considered opinion, the placing of this facility on the open market provides not only a unique opportunity to create a valued business, but also for use of an already established site, which is well situated and which provides for local needs in a sustainable way.
