Notification

Resource Management Act 1991

The Canterbury Regional Council and Selwyn District Council have received an application from Fulton Hogan Limited for various resource consents to establish an aggregate quarry (known as ‘Roydon Quarry’) at the site within the Selwyn District bounded by Curraghs Road, Dawsons Road, Madisons Road and Jones Road, Canterbury, legally identified as: Rural Section 6475 and Rural Section 6324; Lot 1 Deposited Plan 4031; Rural Section 6342; Section 7 Survey Office Plan 510345, and Rural Section 5381 and Section 6 Survey Office Plan 510345

The proposed quarry will generally involve topsoil stripping, bund formation, aggregate extraction to a depth of approximately ten metres below ground level and rehabilitation of the site with cleanfill, overburden and topsoil material. From extraction areas, aggregate material will be transferred by field conveyers and dump trucks to on-site processing plant, which will involve crushing, screening and washing of aggregates. The use of a mobile processing plant is also proposed.

Other activities that are proposed to occur on site include stockpiling of aggregates, wash water ponds, workshops, staff amenity blocks and offices, along with the management of adverse effects such as bunding and screen planting, as well as dust mitigation. Dedicated accesses for heavy and light vehicles will be created off Jones Road, and improvements to Jones Road are proposed, including two options for a roundabout near the intersection of Jones and Dawsons Roads.

Fulton Hogan Ltd have also applied to use water taken pursuant to existing resource consent CRC182422, for the purposes of aggregate washing and dust suppression. Fulton Hogan Ltd have sought a change to the conditions of resource consent CRC182442 to enable this additional use (and a change to Condition 5c). However, it may, in fact, require a new "use" permit to sit alongside CRC182442. Accordingly, a new use permit has been applied for as an alternative to the application under section 127 of the RMA to change the conditions of CRC182442. Either way, the status of the activity (being a different use of water) is discretionary regardless of whether the outcome is achieved by way of a change of conditions or a new resource consent for the use of water.

The applicant has applied for the following resource consents from:

Canterbury Regional Council

  • CRC192408 – A land use consent to excavate material.
  • CRC192409 – A land use consent to deposit cleanfill over an unconfined/semi-confined aquifer.
  • CRC192410 – A discharge permit to discharge contaminants into air from an industrial or trade premise or process.
  • CRC192411 – A discharge permit to discharge contaminants into land where it may enter water from an industrial or trade process within the Selwyn-Te Waihora sub-region.
  • CRC192412 – A discharge permit to discharge stormwater into land where contaminants may enter groundwater.
  • CRC192413 – A discharge permit to discharge contaminants into land where contaminants may enter groundwater associated with the deposition of cleanfill for site rehabiliatation.
  • CRC192414 – A water permit to use water for aggregate washing and dust suppression, either as a change to the conditions of resource consent CRC182422 or a new water permit to use water.

Selwyn District Council

RC185627 - A land use consent for gravel extraction and processing operations within the Inner Plains zone.

An unlimited consent duration is sought for all land use consents, and a consent duration of 35 years is sought for the discharge permits. The proposed expiry date for the water permit is 1 July 2032, which is the same expiry date as the existing water permit (CRC182422).
