Nullaki Lime Pit

Closed 18 Jul 2017

Opened 12 Jul 2017

Overview

The proponent, Mr Graeme Robertson, proposes to extract and process lime on Lot 9005 Rock Cliff Circle, Nullaki Peninsula, Albany. 

The proposal is located 10 kilometres south east from the Denmark townsite. The Bibbulmun Track is located east of the proposal site in Reserve 17464, approximately 500 metres (m) from the proposed extraction area.

The proposal would include staged development of a 7.5 hectare (ha) lime pit and 2ha stockpiling area, with excavations up to 8m in depth.

The realignment and extension of Lee Road to the loading and stockpiling area will have a length of approximately 0.72 kilometres (km) within a road reserve of 20m wide. This together with the road truck access loop have a total length of 1.19 km and will require clearing of approximately 1.72 ha. The proposed haul road is located along the existing firebreak and minimal clearing is expected.

The total amount of clearing for the proposed lime pit, stockpile area, Lee Road extension and road truck access is approximately 11.22ha

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.

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