​The Proposal

​AllTas Engineering Pty Ltd proposes to develop a crushing plant at its existing quarry off Collins Cap Road, crushing up to 10,000 tonnes of material per year. ​

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).​

Development application

This proposal was referred directly by the Derwent Valley Council to the Board of the EPA on 5 July 2021 as a permit application DA 103-2021 and therefore a Notice Of Intent (NOI) was not required. 

Environmental Effects Report Guidelines
