People living close to the proposed 170ha say they have heard little from the company. Fulton Hogan says it regularly consults with businesses, neighbours and residents since forming a seven-member community advisory group in May. A member of the advisory group told a quarry neighbour it met fortnightly for eight sessions, but has stopped meeting since August 30. But a Fulton Hogan spokeswoman says it has other forms of consultation, such as an information centre at the proposed quarry site at Curraghs, Dawsons, Jones and Maddisons Rds. Maddisons Rd llama farmer Anne Thompson believes the consultation is a “PR stunt”. Until Tuesday, she was not contacted by the advisory group since its formation. •Turn to page 5 Hearing aids – the next generation.
