Opened 5 Jul 2019

Overview

Brikmakers (BGC Australia Pty Ltd) propose to extract clay and sand at Lots 5 and 6 (1728) Great Northern Highway, Bullsbrook.

The majority of the site has been previously cleared of vegetation as it was historically used for the grazing of cattle. Several stands of native trees are located mostly to the west of Lot 5 and to the north of Lot 6. 

The total excavation area will be 26 hectares, which includes the clearing of 7 hectares of native vegetation and excavation of up to 26 metres in depth.

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.
