The Proposal

The proposal involves an increase in the permitted annual extraction limit for an existing quarry operation located at Heemskirk Road, Granville Harbour.  The quarry currently operates under a Level 1 permit, and proposed to increase maximum annual production to 19,995 tonnes per annum.  The proposal is located on State Forest on the southern side of the Heemskirk Road, 18km from Zeehan, travelling towards Granville Harbour.

The proponent has lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to West 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).‚Äč
