The Proposal

Porta Mouldings Pty Ltd propose to increase production for an existing sawmill located in Cove Hill Road, Bridgewater. The sawmill is an existing premise and proposes to increase the annual production limit from 4,500 cubic metres per year to 7,000 cubic metres per year. The expansion will involve additional equipment. The closest sensitive receptor (residence) is within 100m.

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