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.

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:
