It seems Hanson has curtailed crushing operations outside of the approved hours. That is very welcomed as it has greatly improved the lives of people living in neighbouring properties. Thank you Hanson.
However, Hanson continues to have trucks entering and leaving prior to 6am on most weekday mornings, detracting from the rural amenity along the haul route, and endangering wildlife. Both were reasons the IPC only allowed truck movements after 6am.
The following is the latest reply from PSC on the matter. If you have first hand evidence of unlawful truck movements outside 6am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, please lodge your complaint with PSC.
If they are still operating on the 1983 consent then activities on Saturday should stop midday Saturday. That’s all business activities inclusive of trucks is my understanding.

Hi B. You are incorrect. The 1983 EIS that was the basis of the consent stated 6 – 6 Monday to Saturday.
Hi BHSAC – Apologies – I had thought I had read somewhere it was midday and yes I stand corrected the EIS 1983 consent says Sat 6pm. I probably did see it somewhere in all these documents it said midday as you can appreciate information in different places and documents. I did however remember on the Hanson Website the hours publicised are 6.30 to 11am on a Saturday. Obviously from the 1983 consent they could go through to 6pm. Maybe thats what made me think midday. Oh and 1983 EIS page 4 section 1.4.3 Blasting between 1pm and 5pm. (and the weather conditions is spelt out very clearly)
