The Proposal

Sunnyside Pastoral Pty Ltd had proposed the upgrade of a quarry currently extracting up to 4,500 cubic metres per annum, to allow extraction and processing by crushing and screening of up to 50,000 cubic metres of rock per annum on a mining lease at 2355 Bridgenorth Road, Westwood.

The proponent had lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Meander Valley 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

A copy of the permit application and all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the EER) were made available for public inspection. The public consultation period is now closed. 


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 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.
