The Environmental Protection Authority previously assessed a proposal by Prestige Bricks to establish a brickworks at the former Midland Abattoir site in Midland.
Following the publication of a statement by the Hon Minister for Environment that the project could proceed subject to eleven conditions, the Company subsequently advised the EPA that due to poor foundation conditions on the southern segment of their site, it proposed to relocate the brick plant and kiln to an area that had previously been designated as a clay stockpile area. This required the clay stockpile area to be located on the southern part of the Company's site within the area that had previously been identified for the establishment of the brick plant and kiln. The EPA requested the Company to submit details of these modifications in the form of a Notice of Intent. The PER documentation from the original assessment was also used.
This is the EPA's assessment of the amended proposal.
