The Proposal

Tas Paper Pty Ltd proposes to demolish a redundant Cell House at Marine Parade, Burnie. This building contains asbestos and is contaminated with mercury. It was proposed that all contaminated material, including soil, will be transported off site for treatment and disposal.

The proponent lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to the Burnie City 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).

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