​​​​​​​​​​​​The Proposal

CLTP Panel Products Pty Ltd proposes to intensify production at an existing sawmill and kiln at Deep Creek Road, Wynyard. Eucalyptus nitens, or plantation hardwood timber, will be sawn and kiln dried on site to produce rough-sawn boards. Kilns used to dry the timber will be fueled by LPG and a timber residue fired heat plant.

The site's existing maximum production rate is 1,000m3 per year under the current Level 1 permit from Waratah Wynyard Council. The proposal would increase production to 20,000m3 of product per year.​

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

Pu​​blic 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 Ef​​fects 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.
