Final push to stop sandmining

Apart from the applicant, all thirteen people who spoke at the Public Hearing of the Independent Planning Commission, into the proposal to expand Boral’s Dunmore sandmining operations to two pits across the highway, opposed the project.

They included MLC Justin Fields and various other local environmental campaigners, including Richard Maitland, Howard Jones and Cliff Mason.
As previously outlined in The Bugle, one pit will be on the land between Dunmore House and the Minnamurra waste depot, while another larger pit will be south of Dunmore House.

Kiama Council did not speak at the Meeting, which was held online, but at an earlier hearing for it and Shellharbour Council.

The deadline for written submissions is 5pm on Wednesday 4 November via email, post or the online portal:
