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

We have a series of workshops and working groups planned for the pre-submission period. Workshops will involve an expert coming to talk with us, whereas working groups are community members getting together to discuss, chat, and assist each other. As always, we are looking at other opportunities to get expertise in certain areas for your benefit.
