The Proposal

Treloar Transport Pty Ltd proposes to increase production of an existing quarry at Porcupine Hill Forthside, northwest coast Tasmania, to a maximum annual production of 30,000 tonnes per year.

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

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.
