Baldivis Sand Quarry Stage 1 Expansion

Proposal description: 

The proposal is to expand the existing Baldivis Sand Quarry Stage 1 operation for approximately three years. The proposal is located within Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) mining lease M70/1046 and operates under Department of Environment Regulation (DER) Licence L8176/2007/2 and Department of Water Licence (GWL 162863(2)). The proposal is on Department of Parks and Wildlife managed land (State Forest).

The area was previously a pine plantation which was then cleared, burned and rehabilitated. The proponent and LandCorp have an established agreement framework by which the Stage 1 and the Expansion site would be transferred to LandCorp following the completion of quarry operations. It is understood that LandCorp would use the land for residential development. The site is zoned Urban Deferred under the City of Rockingham's Town Planning Scheme.
