Introduction - St Peters Operations
Boral's St Peters Operations are situated within the long-standing industrial precinct located in Sydney's inner southern suburbs, just to the north of the Sydney Domestic Airport.
Opened in 1997, the Operations are a key production and staging point to service Boral's customers in and around the Sydney Central Business District, eastern suburbs, and Inner West in addition to the airport region.
The Operations consist of a concrete plant which occupies the south western portion of the site, and a rail terminal / materials handling facility through which various items are transferred from rail to road transport.
An asphalt plant was also located at the site but was closed and demolished during 2002, while the Boral Recycling business also currently operates from the location but will be vacating at the end of February 2020 (see Boral Recycling St Peters tab).
The concrete plant is permitted to produce up to 750 000 cubic metres of pre-mixed concrete products per year for delivery to customers via Boral's agitator fleet. Concrete is presently supplied to residential construction firms as well as vital public infrastructure works such as WestConnex, the recently opened Sydney Light Rail, and the Sydney Metro project.
The rail terminal receives trainloads of materials including aggregates from the Boral Peppertree and Dunmore Quarries, sand from the Dunmore Sand and Soil site, and cement and other items from the Boral Berrima Cement Works. These materials are needed by the organisation's concrete plants as the core 'ingredients' of pre-mix concrete.
The terminal, which is one of three similar Boral facilities including Maldon and Enfield, may transfer up to one million tonnes of materials per year. Activity across both sites occurs 24 hours, seven days a week for the majority of each year.
General Approvals: St Peters Operations
The St Peters Operations are managed to an approval granted by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in September 1996.
The consent (DA 14/16) sets out the operating, environmental and reporting conditions the Operations must comply with throughout their life.
Subsequent to 1996, Boral has received approval for 11 modifications to the consent. At January 2020, Boral is in the process of developing a 12th - information about this modification will be published here once preparations have been completed.
You can read through the consolidated consent documentation here.
The St Peters Operation's planning consent includes requirements to compile a range of reports and perform various audits. These offer an assurance that the provisions of the consent are being complied with.
Annual Reviews - St Peters Operations
The Operations are required to compile an Annual Review (or Compliance Report) at the end of each reporting year, capturing information about operations and performance against a range of criteria. The reviews can be found below.

Operations: St Peters Operations
The rail terminal incorporates a rail unloading area; aggregate and sand storage bins, stockpiling area and bunkers; a weighbridge; and an administration office. Materials are received by train and temporarily stored before being loaded onto trucks for delivery primarily to Boral concrete and asphalt plants across Sydney.
Environmental Management: St Peters Operations
The planning consents which guide our sites often include requirements to develop and make public a number of environmental management plans (EMPs). The purpose of these plans is to set benchmarks and assist the sites to manage operations with respect to a number of related environmental factors.
At the Boral St Peters Operations, these plans have been combined as the sites' Environmental Management and Monitoring Plan (EMMP). This document assists the Operations to meet the terms of its environmental and planning obligations. You can read the EMMP below.
