Port Macquarie-Hastings Council has received additional information, in response to issues raised at the public determination meeting, from the developers of Milligans Road quarry.

The council’s director of development and environmental services, Matt Rogers, said the council’s staff are assessing the extra information.

“Following the Joint Regional Planning Panel (JRPP) meeting in September 2016 the applicant submitted additional information in response to issues raised by the panel,” Mr Rogers said.

“This included information on social, economic and acoustic impacts as well as site suitability.

“This information was re-exhibited and is currently being assessed by council staff.

“All persons who have made a submission during the exhibition period will be notified when the matter is to be reconsidered by the JRPP, with a date for this meeting yet to be set.”
