No Quarry – we should follow Australia’s lead, and ban quarries from operating within a kilometre radius of residential homes – Dr Alistair Humphreys, Canterbury Medical Officer of Health

You’ve probably read about our cause and the dangers of quarrying near local communities in the media and online. And you’ve probably heard about the proposed Fulton Hogan quarry, and the risks of crystalline silica dust entering the atmosphere. For easy access – and to give you the chance to share this information with others – we’ve collated a list of different articles and news stories associated with our cause and the proposed Templeton quarry. If you happen to come across other stories in the media – whether they be in the newspaper, on TV, on the radio or online – please share them with us on the Templeton Resident’s Association Facebook page.

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