The Proposal

Cunningham Holdings Pty Ltd  had proposed to increase production of an existing quarry from less than 5,000 cubic metres per year to a maximum of 20,000 cubic metres per year.  The operation would be expanded in area by less than 1 hectare.  Screening, some crushing, drilling and possibly blasting is to occur.  Mining Lease 4M/2003.

The proponent had lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Tasman 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 inspection. The public comment period is now closed. 

Environmental 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 project specific guidelines for preparation of an EER which were provided by the Board.
