The Proposal

Toronto Pastoral Company Pty Ltd has proposed to expand the footprint and increase production levels of an existing quarry located across two adjoining properties, 326 Prossers Road, Richmond and Lot 3 Logie Farm Road, Orielton.

As each of the two affected properties is in a different municipality, the proponent has simultaneously lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to both Clarence and Sorell Councils.

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.
