The global building-material giant CRH saw its turnover soar by 25 per cent in the year to a whopping €23.6 billion in 2015, putting it comfortably ahead of Microsoft and in first place on Ireland’s Top 1,000 companies list.

Roadstone Ltd have applied to South County Council for retention of a number of services and operations at the Belgard Quarry.

Proposals include the retention of the quarry control office and garage (1,835 sq m), five storage portacabins, a spare-parts storage area (2,445 sq m), maintenance shed (1,177.7 sq m), and a car park with 30 spaces.

The plans also include retention for two weighbridges, a quarry fuelling station, truck-parking area, a security station and multiple perimeter screening berms.

Proposals also include an internal access road (285m long) to the outer ring road entrance/exit gate, pedestrian gates, footpaths, paladin fencing, lampposts, relocation of entrance to C&D recovery site permitted under a previous planning application and all ancillary site works, internal roads and landscape planting.

South Dublin County Council are due to make a decision on the planning application by October 10.
