Lysterfield and Rowville community members were invited to learn about the planning and operating requirements and compliance activities for local quarries at a webinar.

Earth Resources Regulation in coordination with Knox City Council, the Environment Protection Authority Victoria and the Department of Transport delivered the event.

The online community information session was held on Wednesday 24 March 2021 from 7pm and covered:

  • outline the roles of each regulatory authority overseeing quarry operations;
  • explore community concerns about quarry operations; and
  • discuss how, when and where community members can provide feedback about quarry operations.

Upon registration community members were invited you to submit any questions they have about the regulation of quarry operations so these could be answered on the night. Questions could also be submitted during the information session, with as many as possible answered then. Questions relevant to regulatory requirements of quarries submitted before and during the event will also be responded to via the Earth Resources website following the event.

Quarries supply, stone, sand and gravel materials that make up our roads, rail networks, housing, schools, hospitals and more.  All quarries must operate in accordance with regulations to protect public safety and the environment and comply with planning requirements.

The information session was organised in response to an increase in interest around the two quarry operations in the Lysterfield-Rowville area.
