Notice of Application for Planning Approval
The Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup has received an application for Planning Approval under Local Planning Scheme No.7 for the following purpose and public comments are invited:
Lot 1 Donnybrook-Boyup Brook Road, Noggerup
To extract gravel for a 6ha site located in the centre of the above property. It is proposed to extract 60 000m3 (120 000 tonnes) of material over a period of approximately 10 years.
The area for proposed extraction will be cleared of Blue Gums using an excavator. Topsoil and overburden will be stored in designated topsoil storage areas and will be reserved for rehabilitation works. Topsoil stockpiles will not exceed 2m in height.
The depth of excavation will result in a reduction in ground level of 1 metre.
Crushing and screening will be carried out for approximately 3 weeks each year to meet predicted maximum annual output of approximately 10 000m3. The site will be progressively rehabilitated for seeding with pasture grasses.
Details of the proposal are available for inspection at the Shire office, Cnr Bentley and Collins Streets, Donnybrook. Comments on the proposal may be submitted to the Shire in writing on or before Friday 2nd February 2018.
