The Proposal

Sattler PastoralBarnbougle had submitted a proposal which involved the extraction and screening of sand removing up to 950,000 cubic metres of material per annum.

The proponent had lodged a Permit Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to Dorset 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.
