Western Area Remediation Project

Background

Following completion of the remaining demolition activities, Viva Energy intends to commence environmental remediation of the Western Area of the site to ensure it meets current standards for Commercial/Industrial land use.

Preliminary Environmental Assessment

Viva Energy has received approval from the Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E) to have the environmental remediation works designated as a State Significant Development (SSD).

A Preliminary Environmental Assessment (PEA) has been prepared which outlines potential impacts the works may have on the community and the environment. This will allow us to commence work on an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

Following the PEA, the DP&E have engaged various government agencies in order to issue the Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs) for the project which Viva Energy’s EIS is required to satisfy.

You can view the Preliminary Environmental Assessment and the Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements on the DP&E’s website 

Community Consultation

The community may raise any issues or concerns that they may want addressed as part of the EIS by contacting us as follows:

As part of the consultation process, we will be hosting a Community Information Session in early 2019 where the community can learn more about the proposed remediation works.

You can also keep up to date on the project via our community updates.
