The Proposal

Huon Valley Council proposed to increase production from an existing quarry at Pelverata Road, Upper Woodstock, to a maximum annual production of 32,000 tonnes (20,000 cubic metres) per year.

The proponent lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Huon Valley 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 and Public Representations

A copy of the permit application and all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the EER) was made available for public inspection. The public comment period is now closed.

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.
