Relocation of the Cedric Street Wetland - Extension of time limit

Summary:

The City of Stirling (the proponent) wishes to extend the time limit of environmental approval for the Relocation of the Cedric Street Wetland for a further three years.

The proposal was assessed by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) in 1992 at the level of Consultative Environmental Review. The original proponents of the development included the City of Stirling, the then Department of Planning and Urban Development (now Ministry for Planning) and a small number of affected landowners. Since the 1992 assessment, Town Planning Scheme (TPS) No 38 has been ratified by Western Australian Planning Commission, and the City of Stirling has advised that, as the primary executors of the TPS, they will be the sole proponent for the proposed development.

The Minister for the Environment gave environmental approval for the project, subject to conditions, on 19 April 1993. Condition 9 of the Minister's statement of approval (Appendix 3) set a time limit of five years for commencing the project. After this period, any extension to that time limit would have to occur via a request to change the condition under Section 46 of the Environmental Protection Act 1986.

In accordance with Condition 9, the City of Stirling has requested that the time limit of approval be extended for a further three years via a Section 46 change to conditions. This request was made on 23 February 1998, prior to the expiration date referred to in Condition 9.

Proposed limestone extraction: Reserve C3958. Cockburn Road, Henderson

Summary:

Club Head Australia has submitted a proposal to the City of Cockburn to extract 400 000 tonnes of limestone from Reserve C39584. The proposal includes plans for the quarried area to be recontoured and rehabilitated to an 18 hole golf course, funded by the sale of the limestone.

The Environmental Protection Authority considers that the significance of the impacts of the proposal by Club Head Australia is their cumulative capacity to affect the area rather than their individual impacts. The Authority considers that the cumulative impacts are such that the proposal is environmentally unacceptable.

Industry 2030 - Greater Bunbury industrial land and port access planning

Summary:

This Bulletin is the Environmental Protection Authority's (EPA) advice to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) on the Industry 2030 - Greater Bunbury Industrial Land and Port Access Planning under Section 16(j) of the Environmental Protection Act.

Industry 2030 - Greater Bunbury Industrial Land and Port Access Planning is a report by the WAPC which summarises four studies that have been prepared to ensure that there are well located and planned industrial estates and transport routes in Greater Bunbury. The four studies are:

  • Kemerton Expansion Study by BSD Consultants and sub-consultants;
  • Bunbury-Kemerton Transport Corridor Study by BSD Consultants and the Bunbury- Kemerton Transport Corridor Study 1997 - Review of Rail Transport Findings by WPL Railway Engineering Pty Ltd;
  • Preston Industrial Park Land Use and Port Access Study by Feilman Planning Consultants and sub-consultants; and
  • Bunbury Port Access Road Concept Report by Halpem Glick Maunsell and Main Roads.

The intent of the EPA's advice is to:

  1. identify the environmental matters which require the draft recommendations in Industry 2030 to be modified prior to finalisation; and
  2. identify the environmental matters which will require further consideration during subsequent statutory planning processes (i.e. Bunbury Region Scheme, town planning schemes, subdivision and development proposals) so that the environment will be adequately protected.
