The owners of the existing quarry propose to increase the extractive capacity from 583,000 m3 to 1,250,000 m3. This will entail intensification of existing activities, more frequent blasting, extending hours of operation for most activities and taking secondary crushing, loading, and trucking to 24 hour operations. The proposal footprint includes roughly 30 ha of current native vegetation and roughly 100 ha of land to be disturbed above what is currently approved under the existing permit.
The proponent intends to lodge a permit application with Kingborough Council under the Land Use Planning and Approvals Act 1993. The proposal will be subject to an environmental impact assessment by the Board of the EPA (the Board) in accordance with the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPC Act).
Draft EIS Guidelines and Public Submissions
EIS Guidelines, prepared by the Board, assist the proponent in preparing the case for assessment. The guidelines identify the key issues which, based on the information in the Notice of Intent, are expected to be key issues for the assessment of the proposal.
