DA070/22 – MODDA013/23 – PROPOSED MODIFICATION – GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION WORKS – Lot 103 DP 751651 – LAKE LYELL MAGPIE HOLLOW ROAD SOUTH BOWENFELS NSW 2790
Council has received the abovementioned development application from Energy Australia NSW Pty Ltd. The development proposes a MODIFICATION TO THE PREVIOUSLY APPROVED GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION WORKS, at Lot 103 DP 751651 – Lake Lyell Magpie Hollow Road SOUTH BOWENFELS NSW 2790.
The proposed modification involves:
- Up to 13 geotechnical boreholes drilled from existing new (groundwater monitoring) drill sites (approved and proposed).
- Drilling four groundwater monitoring boreholes on existing drill pads and within the approved disturbance footprint.
- Drilling six groundwater monitoring boreholes at three new drill pads outside the approved disturbance footprint, however utilising existing disturbed areas where possible to minimise the need for additional clearing or extensive earthworks; and
- Drilling up to four additional geotechnical boreholes within the investigation envelope.
The proposed modification does not exceed the previously approved disturbance area of 0.97ha.
Please note that these investigations works are required for documentation purposes for a proposed future Pumped Hydro Energy Storage Project. This project, however, will be assessed and determined by the NSW Department of Planning. All enquiries relating to the future project should be directed to the NSW Department of Planning.
The application and plans are available for public inspection at Council’s Environment & Development Department, in the Council Administration Centre, 180 Mort Street, Lithgow, free of charge, during office hours for a period of 28 days until 21 June 2023. They can also be viewed via the link below.
