Roydon Quarry appeal resolved

Updated: Aug 25

Fulton Hogan recognises the need for submitters to have an extension to the time allowed to lodge an appeal against the decision to grant consent for its' Roydon Quarry.

It is recognised that the Independent Hearing Panel's decision to grant consent for the quarry occurred during the Covid-19 lockdown and this made it difficult for submitters to be able to meet to discuss the decision and any planned future steps. 

To further facilitate the community input the Environment Court granted a local rural submitter's request for an extension through to Monday June 29th. 


Following an Environment Court Appeal hearing and Environment Court assisted mediation on the 17-19th May 2021, 25-28th May 2021 and 3rd June 2021, the parties to the appeal reached agreement to the conditions of consent that settle all appeals.

On the 6th October 2021 further mediation on consent conditions with one appellant was resolved with that appellant withdrawing their interest in the appeal.

Environment Court Judge P A Steven issued a Consent Order, dated 3rd November 2021, confirming the mediated consent conditions.


It recognised that the Independent Hearing Panel's decision to grant consent for the quarry occurred during the Covid-19 lockdown and this made it difficult for submitters to be able to meet to discuss the decision and any planned future steps. 


Fulton Hogan says it wants to continue to engage with the community and listen to residents' feedback.
