Project background

  • Re-instating fencing around the site
  • Installing site office facilities
  • Inspecting existing facilities including waste water treatment facilities and completing any necessary repairs.

The proposed facility would include:

  • A demountable site compound office
  • precast yard, including existing shed for construction of precast units and storage laydown
  • Waste water treatment facilities consisting of septic tanks, sand filtration system and sediment basin

Following the exhibition, RMS will consider community and stakeholder feedback before making a determination on the proposal.
