NSW Department of Planning and Environment

On 21 May 2021, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to Holcim (Australia) Pty Ltd (Holcim) for failure to comply with the approved Biodiversity and Rehabilitation Management Plan during 2019, at their Jandra Quarry. Holcim failed to undertake a pre-clearance survey prior to clearing vegetation within the quarry's disturbance footprint in February 2019 and failed to appropriately monitor and assess rehabilitated areas of the quarry during the 2019 calendar year. The Department will continue to monitor the site to ensure quarrying activities are undertaken in accordance with the approved Biodiversity and Rehabilitation Management Plan to ensure impacts to biodiversity in the area are minimised.
