Published on Wednesday, 22 December 2021 at 2:55:52 PM

The Shire is in receipt of an application to operate an extractive industry (gravel & sand) from 320 (Lot 13) Urch Road, Narra Tarra.

Council previously received an application to extract sand from 2 sites, and gravel from 1 site, upon Lot 13 in 2016 and this was advertised to surrounding landowners and relevant government agencies inviting comment prior to being placed before a meeting of Council for determination.

Council subsequently resolved at its 14 December 2016 meeting to approve, subject to conditions, the sand extraction from 1 of the requested sites only, and the gravel extraction from the requested site. This approval was for a period of 5 years after which time the matter was to be returned to Council for further consideration as to any impacts arising from the operation of the development in its determination on whether to grant any extension to the approval period.

The applicant has now applied to continue the extractive industry, and is seeking approval to extract sand from 2 sites, and gravel from 1 site.

This application is being advertised to surrounding landowners and relevant government agencies from 23 December 2021 until 28 January 2022 inviting comment.
