We did

The EPA decided not to assess the proposal as any potential impacts could be dealt with under Part V Division 2 of the EP Act (Clearing).


The Shire of Ashburton is proposing to construct and operate a Waste Transfer Station approximately 5 km south-west of the Onslow townsite. The extent of proposed ground disturbance is 2.2 hectares. 

The Waste Transfer Station will provide temporary storage for putrescible waste, green waste, waste concrete, mixed soils and sand, tyres and mixed building rubble. 

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.
