The Proposal

Tas Paper Pty Ltd proposed to demolish a redundant Cell House at their Wesley Vale Plant which included the removal of asbestos and mercury contaminated materials and soils. The site would then need to be remediated to the satisfaction of the Environment Protection Authority.

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