NSW Department of Planning and Environment

On 9 March 2020, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to ATB Morton (NSW) Pty Limited (ATB) for failing to maintain a minimum 50 m buffer of undisturbed vegetation between extraction areas and any Swamp Sclerophyll Forest, Endangered Ecological Community (EEC) which is a preferred Koala habitat at the Salt Ash Sand Quarry site.  The Department has since issued an Order to rectify the breach by rehabilitating and revegetating the disturbed areas.
