The Proposal

Mr Harold Hansson has proposed to operate a Level 2 quarry and crushing operation at Musketts Road, near Alonnah, South Bruny Island. The project will involve the extraction and crushing of up to 10,000 cubic metres of hard rock per annum.

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).

The proponent lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to the Kingborough Council.

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 and planning 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.
