The Proposal

The City of Hobart  is seeking to increase the final fill height of the McRobies Gully Landfill in South Hobart, from the currently permitted maximum fill level of 184 metres above sea level (AHD) to 200 metres AHD.  The height increase applies to the northern and eastern boundaries of the landfill, with the western and southern levels to remain at current levels.  There are also plans to undertake works to modify water management and surface and subsurface drainage at the site.

The proponent had lodged a Permit Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to Hobart 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).


Public Exhibition of Documentation

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


Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan

The purpose of the DPEMP 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 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.
