Narangba Quarry - Development Application
Boral Resources (Qld) Pty Limited (Boral) propose to extend its existing Narangba Quarry operations. The quarry is situated on Raynbird Road, Narangba in the Caboolture Shire.
A Material Change of Use application has been submitted to Caboolture Shire Council for this extension. The site is zoned Rural under the Caboolture Shire Plan and is designated as Regional Landscape and Rural Production Area in the South East Queensland Regional Plan. The entire site is identified as a Key Resource Area (KRA46) under the State Planning Policy 2/07: Protection of Extractive Resources.
Boral is committed to minimising social and environmental impacts from the quarry operations. The proposed extension only relates to the provision of additional quarry rock reserves and will not result in changes to output from the quarry or additional daily traffic movements, other than as a result of fluctuations in market demand (as is the current situation).
The first Community Open Day was held on Saturday 2 December 2006 to inform local residents of the proposed extension and Boral would like to thank all of the community members who attended. This day provided Boral the opportunity to meet with members of the local community and introduce the proposal and the process. All feedback from the day was valuable to the process and was passed onto the project team to assist in the preparation of the Development Application.
Feedback was also included with the lodgement of the Development Application.
Boral is committed to ongoing consultation with the community and therefore held a second Community Open Day on 21st July 2007, to again enable residents and other interested parties to view the proposals for the quarry extension, speak directly to members of the project team, and provide feedback during the public notification period. Feedback forms were made available on the day. Bus tours of Boral's Narangba Quarry were conducted during the Community Open Day for those people interested in visiting the quarry.
