Planning permission is being sought for the restoration of a 6.17 hectare "abandoned sand and gravel quarry to agricultural grassland".

The works will be carried out by backfilling, using "imported inert soil and stone" at the site at Tinnaclash, Hacketstown, Carlow.

The applicant is Smith Groundworks and Civil Engineering Ltd.

The planning application also seeks permission for all temporary ancillary development works including one site office, one portable toilet, one wheel wash and improvement to the site entrance, access gates and access road and internal access tracks.

A decision is due by Carlow County Council on December 20.
