Holcim is sending copies of its plans for a cement plant to eight thousand households in the Oamaru district.  
 
The resource consent hearing for the plant planned for Weston was adjourned earlier this month while the panel of three commissioners considered the company’s proposal and comments from the council and other submitters.  
 
Paul Commons, general manager of  Holcim says the process will take six to eight weeks for a decision to be released.  
 
The proposed plant is one of three priority options being considered by  Holcim to meet the demand for cement.  
 
They include a continuing in the medium-term with the Westport works, or the long-term options of a new plant at Westport or Weston in Oamaru.
