Save Somersby with 100% Recycled Landscaping Supplies
A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE ON THE CENTRAL COAST
ON THE CENTRAL COAST
Following the purchase of a sand and soil facility located inside the Somersby Industrial Park at 90 Gindurra Rd, family owned company Davis Earthmoving & Quarrying Pty Ltd recently submitted a Development Application to transform the site into a state-of-the-art facility converting sand, soil and building materials into 100% recycled building and landscaping supplies. The facility aims to produce a number of building and landscape products, providing them for re-use mainly in the Central Coast region.
Together, we can Save Somersby by creating jobs, boosting the local economy, diverting waste from landfill, and reducing illegal dumping.
Kariong Sand & Soil Supplies has undertaken numerous assessments to ensure that any potential impacts on neighbours and the environment will be negligible.
Vehicles coming to the site will only travel through the Somersby Industrial Park along Wisemans Ferry and Gindurra roads. Concrete kerbing will be installed on the exit to the site so trucks cannot turn onto local roads, such as Debenham Rd. The maximum number of vehicles entering the facility at maximum capacity will be no greater than 82 cars and trucks per day, mainly between the hours of 7am and 5pm. The maximum number of cars and trucks entering the site will be between 10am and 11am during business hours.
An independent report by Northstar Air Quality Pty Ltd has shown the facility will not impact air quality, including dust and odour impacts, and will meet the EPAs strictest requirements. In addition, a range of voluntary measures will be implemented, such as fence line air quality monitoring to ensure the site continuously operates within air quality standards.
Noise & Vibration
A noise and vibration assessment, including noise modelling, was conducted which found that the predicted noise emissions to the surrounding environment are low. The project fully complies with the NSW Noise Policy for Industry (NPI) of the NSW EPA during site operating hours due to the planned noise controls.
On-site stormwater and erosion control measures will ensure that all storm water is captured, treated and reused on-site. Groundwater will be protected through operational areas being sealed hardstand or using bentonite impregnated geotextiles. WaterNSW has assessed the potential for the proposal to impact water supply infrastructure as low.
