Official Caution issued to Hanson Construction Materials Pty Ltd (Hanson) (Tweed Sand Quarry, PA09_0091, Tweed Shire Council LGA)

On 29 August 2018, the Department issued an Official Caution to Hanson Construction Materials Pty Ltd (Hanson) for exceeding the number of allowable hourly truck movements (ten per hour) from its Tweed Sand Quarry. Following the review of the 2016 Annual Environmental Management Report (a reporting requirement under the conditions of consent), the Department requested truck movement data for the 2016/2017 financial year which identified that on 13 May 2017, 13 laden truck movements occurred in an hour which is a breach of the conditions of approval. 

Since this incident Hanson has received approval for a modification to their consent which will allow for up to 18 laden truck movements once local road upgrades are completed.
