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 industry in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.
In 2012, Property NSW lodged an application with the Department to remediate the properties. The Department placed the Environmental Assessment (EA) supporting the application on public exhibition for three months until February 2013.
During exhibition, we received more than 4,500 submissions, particularly objections to the disposal of contaminated material at the Kemps Creek waste facility. In response, the NSW Government made a determination not to pursue disposal of the material at Kemps Creek.
The Department requested further information from Property NSW to address the issues raised in submissions, including the final disposal location for the contaminated material. The Department requires a Revised Submissions Report from Property NSW to finalise assessment of the application.
Property NSW has been investigating alternative disposal options. Once a disposal location is confirmed, Property NSW will submit the Revised Submissions Report. The Department and the Environment Protection Authority have been working closely with Property NSW throughout this process.
Once we receive the final Revised Submissions Report, we will finalise assessment and the application will then be referred to the Independent Planning Commission.
The Commission will hold a public meeting, providing the community with further opportunity to comment on the proposal. The Commission will consider the community’s views and the Department’s recommendation and make a final decision on the matter.
