This page lists open and recently closed public consultations, including development proposals being assessed by the Environment Protection Authority.
These consultations provide opportunities for the community and stakeholders to have their say.
Note: For development proposals, Case for Assessment is the collective term for documents submitted by proponents and may take the form of an EIS, EER or, in the case of some older proposals, a DPEMP.
See also Department of Natural Resources and Environment Tasmania (NRE Tas) and Parks and Wildlife Service for public consultations run by those agencies.
Note: Public consultations in relation to environmental legislation will be notified on the NRE Tas website - see Environmental Management.
Assessments Open for Public Comment
East Arm Resources Pty Ltd, East Arm Road Quarry Intensification, Hillwood
The proposal is to intensify the existing Level 2 quarry at the site, with rock being extracted from the working area (and then processed) at a greater rate per annum, increasing from 50,000m³ to 130,000m³. The intensification will see the introduction of spot shipments (export) of aggregate to non-Tasmanian locations. Shipments will likely be via Bell Bay Port at Bell Bay. No new buildings or other infrastructure are proposed.
Case for Assessment open for public comment until: 3/7/2023
Recently Closed Assessment Consultations
H.B.M.I. Pty Ltd, Leslie Vale Quarry, Capacity Increase
The owners of the existing quarry propose to increase the extractive capacity from 583,000 cubic metres to 1,250,000 cubic metres. 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.
