The Proposal

PR & SJ Bellchambers had proposed to expand production at an extractive pit at Hodgetts Rd, Holwell to a limit of 45,000 cubic metres of product per year.

The proponent had lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to West Tamar 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 all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the EER) was made available for public inspection.


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 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.
