The Proposal

T H Jenkins has proposed to increase rock crushing at an existing Level 2 gravel pit located at 100 School Road, Sandford. Crushing will increase from 1,333 to 5,000 cubic metres per annum. The total production rate at the quarry will remain at 20,000 cubic metres per annum.

The proponent has lodged a Development Application with a supporting document titled "Red Gravel Pit - Sandford - 1511P/M Change to Operation - Supporting Document" to Clarence City Council.

The application has been referred to the Board of the Environment Protection Authority (the Board) for assessment under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA).

The purpose of the supporting document 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.
