Land Restoration

Transforming Underused or Undeveloped Plots Via Land Restoration in Sittingbourne & Kent | Shaw Haulage

If you are currently in possession of a plot of land that’s seen better days, contact Shaw Haulage. As land restoration specialists for the Kent area, we transform derelict, contaminated or otherwise unusable spaces, allowing them to be developed for a diverse range of end uses. Our past land restoration projects have helped beautify areas including Ashford, Broadstairs, Canterbury, Chatham, Dartford, Deal, Dover, Faversham, Folkestone, Gillingham, Gravesend and Herne Bay – although this list is far from exhaustive.

Land restoration is undertaken in line with client specifications, and alongside relevant authorities to ensure that any legislation or guidance that’s in place on a local level is adhered to. Utilising our fleet of grab hire vehicles and plant machinery, we’ll methodically carry out stages of the project as outlined in original consultation, risk assessment and topographical survey. It’s important that the needs of the local environment, and any flora and fauna present, are taken seriously – and this is why we prove a popular solution for clients in many other Kent locales such as Longfield, Maidstone, Margate, Meopham, Northfleet, Rainham, Rochester, Sheerness, Sittingbourne, Snodland and Whitstable.


Land Restoration Explained

Simply put, land restoration is the transformation of derelict, ineffective or unusable land into that which can be developed, or simply provide benefit as it is (e.g turfed, open land usable by a community as a small public park). The process that takes us from point A to B is different every time, as land is always unique and has its own sets of challenges.

Shaw Haulage uses its 20 years of land restoration expertise to overcome these challenges and meet client needs. Common sites we transform include Brownfield land, quarries and landfills.
