The Proposal

Botanical Resources Australia (BRA) proposed to upgrade and expand a pyrethrum plant at Industrial Drive, Ulverstone to 15,000 tonnes of production per year.

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


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 EER) were made available for public inspection.

Following the public comment period the proponent was required by the Board to prepare an EER Supplement to address issues raised in public and government agency consultation
