No appeals yet on Holcim plant, New Zealand
Published: 26 February 2008

No appeals have yet been filed with the Environment Court over  Holcim (New Zealand) Ltd’s proposed $200m cement plant at Weston, although one opposition group will do so this week.  
 
Holcim was granted resource consents to build and operate the plant, along with associated coal, limestone and cement quarries, on February 11 by the Waitaki District Council and the Otago Regional Council. Following that, there were 15 working days for an appeal to be lodged with the court.  
 
The Waiareka Valley Preservation Society, which opposes the plant, said when the decision was released that it planned to appeal.
