Sand and Limestone Extraction, Lots 1498 and 1504 Finn Road, Myalup

Closed 22 Aug 2021

Opened 16 Aug 2021


Ietto Farms proposes to extract sand and limestone from Lots 1498 and 1504 Finn Road, Myalup in the Shire of Harvey.   The original extractive industry licence for this proposal expired in July 2014. 

The proposal would extract sand and limestone from the site, to facilitate road construction projects throughout the southwest of Western Australia. 

The proposal is located adjacent to Lake Preston, a conservation category wetland and RAMSAR listed wetland. 

The proposal would require the clearing of 23 hectares of native vegetation and the extraction of materials from three pits over several stages.

Why your views matter

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.
