DUNGOG SHIRE COUNCIL’S VICTORY OVER MARTIN’S CREEK QUARRY

There’s been a win for Upper Hunter residents, with the Land and Environment Court finding Martin’s Creek Quarry has been operating unlawfully outside the approved footprint.

Daracon has been given a fortnight to make a new plan for reducing such operations.
