Our goal is to change New Zealand law, to create sensible limits on how close a quarry can be put to a home. While the Ministry for the Environment’s good practice guidelines recommend a setback distance of 500m from those containing crystalline silica, there is no law enforcing such requirements. In other countries – including India and Pakistan – they insist on a 1km minimum setback. We want New Zealand to be the same, if not better.

Sign our petition – Ask the NZ Government to ensure sensible quarrying distances from residential properties.
