The Proposal

Landfall Nominees Pty Ltd had proposed to expand operation of a quarry, including blasting, rock crushing and screening for the production of a maximum of 50,000m3 of rock product per annum, at 2 Greenhythe Rd, Hillwood.

The proponent lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to George Town 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

A copy of the permit application and all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the EER) were made available for public inspection. The public comment period is now closed. 


Environmental Effects Report

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

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