Opened 21 Nov 2018

Overview

The proponent, Kelliher Bros. plan to expand their grass-fed beef production business from 6 weeks a year to year-round grazing.  To achieve this, the proponent would like to trial the installation of a single 40 ha centre pivot irrigator for irrigating pasture within an area of Lot 209 Paterson Road, Ravenswood (88 ha). 

The proposal occurs within the Environmental Protection Peel Inlet - Harvey Estuary Policy 1992 policy area.

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.
