We received the following at 5.05 PM today from NSW Planning:
Please be advised that the Determination for the Brandy Hill Quarry Expansion Project is now available on the IPCN website:
The wait is over! Please read the 3 documents from the IPC, either from the above website near the top under the heading “DETERMINATION”, or attached at the end of this post, to draw your own conclusions.
The IPC has basically endorsed the recommendations from the DPIE with some improvements in favour of the community.
- The 6 bus bays and pathway must be completed BEFORE annual production can exceed 700,000 tonnes
- No trucks before 6am
- Enclosure of all fixed processing equipment from stage 1.
There will be many disappointments for the community, but also many for Hanson, so perhaps there is some balance.
Clearly, without the efforts of so many community members, the outcome would have been much worse, so I thank you all.
The three IPC determination documents are available below:
Thank you Margaret and your committee for all your efforts.
Not keen on the up to 8pm crushing.😭
Or coal fly ash !
And concrete waste
We agree that 8pm for secondary crushing is later than what we wanted in order to protect amenity, but it is vastly better than the 24/7 that Hanson wanted for all activities. 8pm is also much earlier than what Hanson has been frequently crushing up until. Also, with the dust and noise enclosures required from stage 1, the impacts should be significantly reduced compared to now.
Congratulations Margaret, Chantal and the Brandy Hill Community,
You have achieved some major concessions here with road safety. I havenât read the documents yet but you appear to have had some great wins for the community.
