Importance of quarry industry highlighted to councils

The QPANI has recently published and circulated an information brochure to local Councillors and Planning Staff highlighting the importance of the quarrying industry and wider construction materials sector.

The information is specific to each council area in Northern Ireland and the very specific planning needs the sector requires if it is to remain sustainable.

The document sets out, in what QPANI hopes is a very clear way, how important the industry is in supporting local communities and providing the materials that help build and maintain our infrastructure and ultimately sustaining our quality of life.

The QPANI is also invited members to attend the Local Member Forums.

These events take place on Thursday’s at 7.30pm and are preceded by a fork supper at 6.15pm.

They are an excellent opportunity to network with other industry colleagues and keep up to date with the issues affecting it. The 2016 dates are as follows:

3 March                 Dunsilly Hotel Antrim(AGM)

12 May                  Walsh’s Hotel, Maghera

22 September        Seagoe Hotel, Portadown

1 December          Gelnavon Hotel, Cookstown
