Environmental Issues - Burlington Stone

Environmental Issues

Burlington operate seven quarries in and around the English Lake District - one of the oldest and largest of the National Parks. Because of the sensitive areas in which some of the quarries are situated Burlington work closely with local planning authorities and environmental groups in order to minimise any impact that its operations may have on the landscape.

As part of this co-operation, in 2000 Burlington was proud to become a member of the Corporate Forum for National Parks. This is made up of companies that have interests within the various National Parks. The members meet regularly with the Campaign for National Parks to discuss current projects along with any forthcoming changes to government policy on environmental matters.
