Registered quarries

Section 261 of the Planning and Development Act 2000, deals with the control of quarries and came into effect on the 28th April, 2004. All quarries, other than those for which planning permission has been granted within 5 years of Section 261 being commenced, were required to register with Clare County Council before 27th April 2005. Failure to register resulted in the quarry being deemed unauthorised and subject to enforcement proceedings, irrespective of the previous legal status of the operation.
