The Proposal

Hanson Construction Materials Pty Ltd has proposed to construct and operate a quarry for the production of up to 75,000m3 per year of crushed and screened dolerite product.

The proponent lodged a Development Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to Launceston City Council.

The application was referred to the Board of the Environment Protection Authority (the Board) for assessment under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA).


Public Exhibition of Documentation and Public Representations 

A copy of the permit application, including all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the DPEMP), was made available for public inspection. The public comment period is now closed. Following the public comment period the proponent was required by the Board to prepare a DPEMP Supplement to address issues raised in public and government agency consultation

 


Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan

The purpose of the DPEMP is to provide a source of information upon which interested individuals, groups, government agencies and the Board may consider the environmental and planning impacts of the proposal.

The DPEMP was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the project specific guidelines for preparation of an DPEMP which were provided by the Board.
