Two things to report.
Firstly, a CCC will be held tomorrow, so we may have more to report on Hanson’s plans for adopting the new consent, after the meeting.
Secondly, as you know, a condition of the new consent is that a shared pathway and bus bays must be completed before Hanson can increase annual output over the current 700,000 tonnes per year.
Port Stephens Council delivered a newsletter to residents this week, outlining the concept plan for the 2.1 metre wide and 4.4km long pathway. See attached.
The website says that design is expected to be finalised by the end of 2021, and construction to begin in 2022, with an estimated budget of $3.4m.
An online information session is planned for residents on 23rd November, 4-5pm. Register to attend on the PSC website:
