Proposed Bunyip North Quarry Plans delayed again!
EES to go on public exhibition in August, 2021

Following multiple delays, Hanson’s most recent indication is that they will complete their Environmental Effects Statement (EES) in August 2021. The EES details their quarry plans and how they say their operation will affect the area.
From August, the EES will be available for public review and all parties, including residents, are invited to examine the EES and make submissions indicating concerns and objections that they have regarding the Hanson plans and its effects on the area.

You do not need to have a technical background to make a submission. Submissions can be as simple as highlighting why you do not want this quarry and how you believe it will affect you and your way of life. The more submissions, the better the understanding the decision makers will have on the effects on our community.


We have compiled a list of impacts this proposed quarry will have on you and Bunyip North in the downloadable PDF below. You may find these helpful when creating your submission.


If you require assistance in lodging your submission, or you would like to discuss things with a member of the MCADPG Committee, please do not hesitate to contact us via the phone numbers also listed in the PDF document.


Kind regards,

The Mount Cannibal and District Preservation Group.
