  • The site is approximately 170 hectares in size, and it is proposed to quarry no more than 40 hectares at a time, to a depth of approximately 10 metres below ground level.
  • Land use and discharge consents are required from Environment Canterbury, and a land use consent is required from Selwyn District Council. Changes are also required to an existing water permit for the site to allow for the water to be used for aggregate washing, dust suppression and other quarrying purposes.
  • The application will be publicly notified, as requested by Fulton Hogan.
  • If further information is required by either council this will be requested before the application is publicly notified.
  • The Councils are currently in the process of organising for an independent person, with expertise in planning and the submission process, to be available for drop-in sessions for the public to provide advice. We are still working through the logistics of these sessions. 
  • An unlimited duration is sought for all land use consents, and a 35 year duration is sought for the discharge consents.
