Fulton Hogan put forward a plan for a new 170ha quarry on Templeton’s Dawsons, Curraghs and Jones Rds last week. Templeton Residents’ Association chairman Garry Kilday has organised a meeting with the Weedons Residents’ Association tonight at 7.30pm in St Saviour’s Anglican Church on Kirk Rd to establish petitions opposing the quarry. Mr Kilday said the concern is as the boundary between the Selwyn District Council and Christchurch City Council is Dawsons Rd, the district council may not be as inclined to listen to non-ratepaying constituents. Weedons association secretary Gary Doyle said the group had not yet met to discuss the issues the quarry would bring. But it would be supporting the Templeton group. “There will definitely be traffic implications for us,” he said. •Turn to page 3 If you’re l over a new service plan Weedons residents asked to help fight quarry plan
