The Proposal

The proposal involves extracting, processing and crushing of up to 20,000 cubic metres of material per annum.

The proponent lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to the Derwent 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).

The EER was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the project specific guidelines for preparation of a EER which were provided by the Board.

Public Exhibition of Documentation and Public Representations

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

Following the public comment period the proponent was required by the Board to prepare an EER Supplement to address the issues raised in public and government agency consultation.
