The Proposal

Allan Lord Holdings Pty Ltd proposed to operate a Level 2 quarry and materials handling activity to produce a maximum of 50,000 cubic metres per year on Mining Lease 1398 P/M, Purdy's Road, Pulbeena, near Smithton.

The proponent lodged a Development Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to the Circular Head 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 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 and planning 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.
