The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) has received a request from Flagship Commodities Pty Ltd, under contract to the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS), for approval to remove an ilmenite sand stockpile and conduct a subsequent site rehabilitation in Bundjalung National Park.

The proposed works will remove an unwanted waste legacy from previous sandmining and restore the site to its original condition in accordance with the adopted plan of management for the park.

The site of the works would be adjacent to Gap Road near Jerusaleum Creek in Bundjalung National Park. OEH will be determining the works on behalf of NPWS as an activity under Part 5 of the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

The project is expected to take up to five years to complete and the removed material will be disposed of on the open market.

A public exhibition is available and members of the public are invited to make submissions on the proposal.

Please note: In response to a number of requests from the public for more time to fully assess this proposal, the deadline for submissions has been extended to 4pm Friday 30th January 2015.
