The Proposal

A Level 2 materials handling and extractive activity

Scott Leonard proposed to extract and screen a maximum of 30,000m3 per year of sand and gravel at 201 Pages Road, Moorleah.

The proposal involves the redevelopment of previous gravel pits located on the land to produce sand and gravel for brick, mortar, paver and concrete manufacture, as well as bedding and filling sands and general construction sands.

Extracted materials will be stockpiled on site and progressively screened.

Scott Leonard lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Waratah-Wynyard 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).
