This was the third email update distributed to our subscribers.


Opposition to the Royalla Hard Rock Quarry Proposal (update #3)


Good morning,


Thanks again for subscribing to our updates to keep up to date on the opposition to the proposed hard rock quarry in Royalla.


WHAT WE NEED URGENTLY


1. Complete and submit the Community Feedback Form

R.W. Corkery & Co (an independent company managing some aspects of this proposal) have previously distributed a Community Feedback Form. We have stirred much awareness in the community and been featured in several news items locally, however we still need to follow the formal process else our efforts are wasted.


Please click here, download and complete the Community Feedback Form.


2. Community Members to submit personal impact statements.


Are you currently suffering from a physical or mental health condition that will be compounded by another quarry?


We'd love to hear from you.


As part of building awareness, we'd like to share some of these stories in an anonymous format, to help the broader region understand the impacts of a quarry.


Do you suffer from asthma? Wil your condition be severely impacted as a result of reduced air quality? What adjustments will you have to make to your way of life?


If you wish to submit a story and remain anonymous, we will absolutely respect your wishes in their entirety!
