The Hunters Hill Remediation project relates to three Government owned properties at 7-11 Nelson Parade, Hunters Hill. The properties are contaminated because of previous industrial activities that operated on the site in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

 

Property NSW previously proposed to excavate the contaminated soil and transport it to a licensed landfill at Kemps Creek in Western Sydney. There was substantial community opposition to this proposal.

 

To address community concerns, Property NSW undertook further investigations into alternative disposal options and has now submitted a final Preferred Project Report (PPR) 2020. The PPR describes the proposal to transport all contaminated material from the site to a licensed facility in the United States of America.

 

The department welcomed feedback on the PPR from 1 December 2020 until 22 December 2020.

 

Read the report

 

The PPR details the new approach proposed by Property NSW, which includes:

  • excavating all contaminated material from the site and loading it into sealed international packaging bags and then shipping containers
  • exporting the waste to a licensed facility in the United States of America for final disposal.

 

The remediation project is expected to take up to 12 months in total. This includes site preparation and remediation works, with the transport of material from the site taking up to four months.

 

What’s next?

We will now review your feedback and undertake our detailed technical assessment of the application and make our final determination.

 

Subject to obtaining project approval, the works are scheduled to commence in 2021.
