Templeton - NO QUARRY!!!! Help us fight Fulton Hogan's Resource Consent application and getting NZ law changed regarding quarry activities.

Main image

Quarrying activity within 100 meters of your house?? Having to vacuum with a mask on due to hazardous silica dust (similar effects as asbestos) in your house??

This is the reality for some people in our nation due to quarrying activity.

2018 started with the shocking and disturbing news that Fulton Hogan wants

to develop 170 hectares of rural land right on the outskirts of Christchurch

into a new Quarry. Health effects, noise, traffic concerns and changes in lifestyle are some of the

serious concerns shared by Templeton/Weedons residents.

We know that Fulton Hogan is applying for a resource consent. In the current system, the only legal option that we have to oppose this Quarry is for Templeton Residents and Groups to make written statements (submissions) writing in detail the adverse effects the quarry will have on them as well as their concerns and comments.

For our community/TRA to do this well we need to engage with various experts to assist in this process. Unfortunately they come at a significant cost.

Every cent donated will go towards the fight - NO QUARRY.

Use of funds

Support the Templeton Residents Association and the community with the costs of experts and costs towards fighting the quarry. One of our ultimate goals is to get the NZ law changed so that this does not happen to other communities.

Still going...  14 March 2019

Posted by: Templeton Residents Association

Not in our wildest dreams did we imagine when we started this page on 1 March 2018 that not only will we still be going 1 year later, but the application by Fulton Hogan has not even been publicly notified yet.

This is to let you know that we are still fighting the good fight and will continue to do so to the end of this process. Money donated will be responsibly used to pay for our Planner and experts contributing to the TRA submission against the proposed Quarry.

We would also like to encourage everyone to make a submission against the application once it’s publicly notified.

We are still doing what we can to have national standards and rules for Quarry Activities in New Zealand.

Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated.

Please look at our website for more information and updates.
