By March 29, 2016

A Portland quarry firm is attempting to claim £18m in compensation from Dorset County Council following changes to access to a site it owns.

Portland Stone Firms Ltd bought the rights to quarry on the Jurassic Coast in 2004.But it claims a modification order in 2009 means there is no longer safe access to the site near Southwell.

The company said it has spent nearly £1m on legal fees ahead of a tribunal due to take place on 4 June.
