The Proposal

The proposal consisted of an increase in production of dolerite gravel from 100,000 cubic metres per year to a maximum of 200,000 cubic metres per year at the Long Hill Quarry, Dan Rd, near Elizabeth Town. Rock will be extracted by blasting and will be crushed and screened on site.

The proponent lodged a Permit Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to Meander Valley 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 DPEMP) were made available for public inspection. The public comment period is now closed.


Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan

The purpose of the DPEMP 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 DPEMP was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the Project Specific Guidelines for preparation of a DPEMP which were provided by the Board.
