The Proposal

Treloar Transport Pty Ltd have proposed to construct and operate a Level 2 landfill within their current mining lease at Shackley Hill Sheffield. Two sections will be used for construction, demolition and solid inert wastes, with a combined capacity of 6,000 tonnes per annum.

Treloar Transport Pty Ltd lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to the Kentish 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 proponents 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 advertised for public comment. The period for public comment is now closed.

Following the public comment period the proponent was required by the Board to prepare an EER Supplement to address issues raised during the comment period.
