Opposition to the Sheridan Hill Quarry

Opposition to Sheridan Hill Proposed Mining Quarry

Sheridan Hill in north Pitt Meadows showcases our community’s natural beauty and is a wildlife habitat for heron, bald eagles, bears and many other animals. The proposed quarry will not only change 7.2 hectares on the south face of the hill and cause the removal of 1,400 cubic metres of trees, but will negatively affect the peaceful space of the residents and trail users in the area, as the mine will be blasting rock from 7am to 6pm Monday–Saturday for the next five years.

This application to the Ministry of Mines and Energy represents a significant change to Sheridan Hill. This quarry will be visible from many areas. Residences, farms and other businesses are likely to be affected by blasting and dust from the operation.
