​​​​​​​​The Proposal

The proposal is for an increase in annual production at an existing quarry to a maximum of 50,000 cubic metres of hard rock processed per annum, and will also involve an increase in the area of the mining lease to allow for the expansion. The quarry is located on private land at the end of Montgomerys Road, approximately 7 kilometres to the west of the township of Buckland. Drilling and blasting of rock will continue to occur (up to approximately 6 blasts per annum) and crushing and screening of material will also continue to occur.

The proponent has lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Glamorgan Spring Bay 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 EER) were made available for public consultation from Friday 28 May 2021 to Thursday 10 June 2021. The public consultation period has now closed. ​

​​Environmen​tal Effects Report

The purpose of the EER 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 EER was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the guidelines for the preparation of an EER which were provided by the Board.
