The Proposal

Pensea Investment has proposed to increase production from 5,000m3 to 40,000m3 of crushed and screened rock product at the existing quarry located off South Road, Ulverstone.

The proponent has lodged a Development Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to Central Coast 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, and of all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the DPEMP) were available for public inspection. The public comment period is now closed.


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.
