The proposal is for the subdivision of Lots 1 & 2 Cockburn Sound Location 16, for industrial purposes. This is consistent with the present zoning of the land.
The proposal is located on cleared land which was mined for limestone and then re-contoured. Part of the proposed subdivision is within the 200 m buffer area for the Water Authority Sewage Treatment Plant located north of Gordon Road, however as light winds which carry odours tend to occur in the evening outside of working hours the Water Authority considers that Industrial land use is acceptable within the buffer zone area. Stormwater runoff from all road reserves within the industriai subdivision will be piped to a central sump with the sufficient storage capacity to cater for a 1 in 100 year storm event.
This site is within the area defined as the Peel-Harvey Catchment by the Minister for the Environment.
