The Proposal

Stornoway Quarrying proposed to expand production at their existing Raeburn Quarry, located off Hobart Road Breadalbane, to 200,000 cubic metres of gravel per annum. The proposal included a batching plant to produce 20,000 cubic metres of concrete per annum, and recycling of up to 10,000 cubic metres of building materials 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 Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to the Northern Midlands Council.

The DPEMP was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the project specific guidelines for preparation of a DPEMP which were provided by the Board.
