The Proposal

Rushy Holdings Pty Ltd has proposed to construct and operate a Level 2 quarry (1879P/M) off Cape Portland Road, removing up to 20,000 cubic metres of dolerite resource 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 Dorset Council.

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.
