Fulton Hogan is taking technical experts, staff and information out to the Weedons and Templeton communities over four days to talk to residents about any concerns they may have over the proposed Roydon Quarry in Jones Rd, Selwyn.
The company is planning a series of information evenings from November 6th-8th. in a marquee next to the Templeton Community centre where residents can come down and hear the latest information relating to the quarry proposal and talk to Fulton Hogan staff. There will also be a session at the Drop-in Centre on the proposed quarry site on the 5th November.
South Island General Manager Craig Stewart says it’s an opportunity for residents to share their concerns and hear from experts how Fulton Hogan is planning to deal with issues such as dust, truck movements and water quality.
“We recognise and understand that some of the residents are concerned about the impact the quarry might have on the community. We have a lot of information including proposed site lay out, latest technology looking at issues like wind direction and weather monitoring and new technology on display like water fogging and misting machines which stop any dust leaving the site. I’m hoping that hearing this information from our experts will allay any fears they may have.”
“We want to be really open and honest with the community and that’s why we are coming out to Templeton and Weedons over four days to give people every opportunity to come and talk to us and engage in a meaningful way.”
“We see this quarry as a “site for the future” and we have a big responsibility to get this right.”
