The Proposal

Ms Elizabeth Hall proposes to extract a maximum of 20,000 cubic metres per annum of aeolian sand from mobile dunes. The area is covered by mining lease 2062P/M and site activities will include excavation of sands using a front‐end loader, screening to remove vegetative matter, stockpiling of sand in a storage and handling area, and loading of trucks with sands using a front‐end loader before transport from the property.

The proponent has lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Dorset 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 consultation period has 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.
