Gravel Mining at Scrivener Road Reserve Serpentine

Closed 16 May 2016

Opened 10 May 2016


The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale proposes to extract gravel from a twelve hectare area known as the Scrivener Road Gravel Reserves.  The reserves are located at the top of the scarp south of Serpentine and contain nesting habitat for all three protected black cockatoo species.  Extraction is proposed in two hectare stages over a period of thirteen years.

Why we are consulting

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

The following diagram shows the stage this referral is at:

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The Chairman's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
