Neighbouring municipality objects to ‘hidden quarry’

Halton Hills council recently filed a letter of objection with the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) to the James Dick Construction licence application for the proposed “hidden quarry” in Guelph-Eramosa, southwest of Rockwood.

The move marks a significant shift in position from a previous letter from Halton Hills staff to the MNR, which stated the town is still reviewing the application and it is considered premature to state a position.

James Dick Construction is seeking an aggregate licence from the MNR as well as a zoning amendment from Guelph-Eramosa Township that will allow the company to proceed with the proposed pit, which is expected to produce about 700,000 tonnes annually of sand, gravel and dolostone.

The quarry would cover about 25 hectares (61 acres) of the 39 hectare (100 acre) James Dick property at the northeast corner of 6th Line and Highway 7.
