The Proposal

MMG Australia Limited had proposed a waste depot (tailings storage facility) with a design capacity of 950,000 tonnes per year, located off Murchison Highway, Rosebery. A Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) had been lodged in support of the application 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).


Public Exhibition of Documentation

A copy of the permit application, and of all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the DPEMP) were made available for public inspection.


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 and planning 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.
