Fulton Hogan has asked for an extra two weeks to gather more information for its’ consent application for the proposed Roydon Quarry.
The dead-line for responding to requests for information from the Selwyn District Council and from Environment Canterbury was February 28th but Fulton Hogan is seeking an extension to March 12th.
Fulton Hogan South Island General Manager Craig Stewart says since the consent was lodged, there have been a number of questions posed by Councils and the company wants to make sure it “dots all the i’s and crosses all the t’s” to get everything right.
“We want to make sure that councils and submitters have the most up to date information.”
“We know all eyes will be on us with this proposal and we want to ensure we get this right and that means doing everything we can to minimise any impact on the environment and the community.”
Information on Environment Canterbury’s website states that once the information is received, both Councils will review and assess it to determine whether it is complete, or whether additional clarification from Fulton Hogan is required.
Once the information is deemed to be complete, the applications will be publicly notified, providing the opportunity for submissions to be made.
Dates for the hearing will be set once the applications are notified, and Independent Commissioners will be appointed to hear and decide the applications.
