Cemex loses Scottish quarry

Cemex has been urged to abandon any plans for its site at Glen Devon, Perthshire Scotland after its latest bid was rejected by Scottish ministers.

Cemex UK originally won planning permission for its site at Glen Devon in the Ochil Hills in 1964. The company had hoped to renew consent, which expired four years ago, extending the lifespan of the operation to 2035.

Last year the bid was thrown out by councillors after widespread opposition from locals and community groups.

Last week an appeal by Cemex to the Scottish Government also failed. Now, the firm has been urged to quit the site after five decades.

A spokeswoman said Cemex is considering the appeal decision but declined to comment further.
