Call to stop work

The Dunedin City Council has been asked to apply for an urgent stop work order amid concerns quarrying of the lower hump of Saddle Hill could cause it to collapse.

The requests, which will be sent to the council, were resolutions from a public meeting of residents on Saturday organised by Dunedin South MP Clare Curran.

More than 30 people attended the meeting, held at David and Kerry Hiom's home. Saddle View Estate Ltd sole director Calvin Fisher said suggestions the hill was in danger of collapsing were ''ridiculous''.
