Quarry takes on city council

CHAMPION’S Quarry has launched a Land and Environment Court appeal against Lismore City Council’s refusal to allow it to expand.

The council voted seven-to-four against a staff recommendation a year ago to expand the material taken from the Tucki Tucki quarry from 29,000m{+3} a year to 200,000 tonnes a year.

The court action also comes after the quarry lodged a major project application with the State Government, which would allow the Planning Minister to overturn the council decision.

That application remains before the State Government and an environmental assessment is expected to be lodged next month. Public exhibition of the application would follow.

Work on a timetable for the Land and Environment Court case wasexpected to start mid next month.
