The Proposal

Asphalt Suppliers proposed to construct and operate a Level 2 pre-mix bitumen plant located at 30 & 34 Industrial Drive, Ulverstone and producing up to 20,000 tonnes per annum.

The proponent lodged a Development Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to the Central Coast 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 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.


Public Exhibition of Documentation and Public Representations

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

Following the public comment period the proponent was required by the Board to prepare a DPEMP Supplement to address issues raised in public and Government Agency consultation.
