A proposal to develop a new piggery at Harden – which has been under assessment for several months – has been further delayed with more information required from the applicant to allow the application to be assessed.
According to Council’s General Manager, the delay has occurred as result of a request form the applicant to be given further time to provide information requested by Council, the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) and the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH).
“We had hoped to have all the necessary information provided to make a determination, however the applicant has requested further time to be able to provide information previously requested,” Mr McMahon said.
Although the final decision on the development rests with Council, General Terms of Agreement are required from both the EPA and OEH if Council is to approve the application.
A final date for the development to be presented to Council is not yet known.
