Proposal for Sand Quarry in She Oaks


An application has been submitted to establish a sand quarry in She Oaks. The site of this proposed quarry is on the Maude – She Oaks Road, approximately 1 km East of the Strong Road intersection. See map below. The property is 23 hectares in size, with the proposed quarry to be 13.7 hectares.


The proposal was submitted in July 2016 to the Department of State Development, Business and Innovation (DSDBI) and is currently being evaluated. If the plan is approved by DSDBI, the proposal will be advertised, allowing the public to review the mine site management plan.

 As local residents, we are concerned about the potential for this development to impact on the safety, amenity and environmental qualities of She Oaks and surroundings. There are concerns about road safety, native flora and fauna, increased heavy vehicles, noise, dust, visual impact, compliance with permit requirements, poor standards of land rehabilitation, and adverse effects on property values for those nearby.
