9.       Measures shall be applied to prevent site vehicles tracking sediment and other pollutants onto adjoining roads and to prevent dust nuisance.

 

10.     Should it be necessary for the road and/or drainage system to be reinstated or cleaned up due to erosion and/or sedimentation from the site, then such works shall be undertaken at no cost to Council. 

 

Services Provisions

 

11.     The development site shall have a temporary, transportable effluent disposal facility at all times during the operation of the use.

 

Rubbish Collection

 

12.     At all times while the use continues, waste containers shall be maintained in a clean and tidy state and shall be emptied and the waste removed from the site on a regular basis.

 

Access, Roads, Landscaping and Lighting

 

13.     All weather vehicle access shall be provided for traffic movement within the development site

 

Use of Local Government Roads

 

14.     The developer must ensure that the roads are safe for the type of vehicles being used. If road trains are being used on local government roads other than the Mt Saltbush Road, the developer must provide advice in writing from a suitably qualified RPEQ engineer that the local government roads to be used are safe for the type of road trains to be used on those roads.

 

15.     Prior to the commencement of the use of each road, the developer must provide Council with a road condition assessment report prepared by a RPEQ qualified to make the assessment. This assessment report must be provided for each local government road to be used by the developer for the haulage of extracted materials. The assessment does not need to include Mt Saltbush Road.

 

16.     Each year, the developer is to provide the Council with an updated road condition assessment report for the local roads being used.

 

17.     The developer is responsible for the repair of damage to roads caused by the operation the extractive industry. If there are other road users who have also contributed to the damage of the roads, the costs of repairs will be on a proportional basis. The proportion of damage attributable to the developer will be as assessed by the Council unless the developer can prove otherwise.

 

18.     Any damage to roads and infrastructure, that is attributable to the progress of works on the development site or to vehicles associated with the development of the site, shall be repaired to at least the previous condition and at no cost to Council or, if the Council agrees, the cost of repairs may paid to Council for the Council to carry out the repairs.  It is the developer’s responsibility to document by photographs the previous condition of existing roads and infrastructure and to supply Council with a digital set of these photographs prior to any works commencing

 

19.     The responsibility for the repair of damage to roads caused by vehicles associated with the extractive industry is separate to the contributions required for the establishment costs associated with the use of local government roads.

 

Road Infrastructure Establishment Costs Contributions

 

20.     Infrastructure establishment costs are to be paid in accordance with this condition:

 

(a)      Why the condition is required:

 

          The condition is required because the development is outside of the Priority Infrastructure Areas of the Bungil Planning Scheme administered by the Maranoa Regional Council. The development will impact on the local roads. It will impact on the local roads because up to 100,000 tonnes per annum will be carried from the extractive industry site along local roads.

 

(b)      Amount of the payment required:

 

          The payment required is 20 cents per tonne of extractive material carried.

 

          This amount will be reviewed on an annual basis in conjunction with an assessment of the condition of the local government roads being used by the developer.

 

          The standard of road to be funded by the establishment costs contributions is the standard which allows for the safe carriage of extractive materials while optimising the maintenance costs of the road.

 

          In addition, further payments for establishment costs are required if the developer chooses to operate road trains on local government roads other than the Mt Saltbush Road. The amount of this payment is the cost of undertaking the work necessary to make the local government roads, being used by road trains carrying extractive material from the site, safe for road train use.

 

(c)      Details of the infrastructure for which the payment is required:

 

          Establishment costs of the following trunk infrastructure made necessary by the development –

       Local government roads used by the developer to transport extracted material

       Upgrading of local government roads to the standard necessary for the safe operation of road trains

 

(d)      When the payment must be made:

 

          The payment must be made within 14 days of the end of each quarter.

 

(e)      Person to whom the payment must be made:

 

          Maranoa Regional Council

 

(f)       The applicant may elect to supply all or part of the infrastructure instead of making payment for the infrastructure to be supplied. If the applicant makes an election to supply all or part of the infrastructure required, the infrastructure must be supplied before the use commences. The standards applying for the provision of the infrastructure are those set out in the applicable planning scheme, the Capricorn Municipal Development Guidelines and the latest standards for other matters as set out in legislation.

 

Records of Extractive Industry and Road Use

 

21.     The developer is to maintain records of all heavy vehicles and the loads being transported from the site and provide Council with a summary within 14 days of the end of every quarter.

 

22.     The developer is to provide Council with a summary of all returns that are made to the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (DEHP) for the extraction of material from the site within 14 days of the end of every quarter.

 

23.     The developer is to provide Council with access to the original records used to create the quarterly summaries if requested by the Council for verification purposes

 

Infrastructure Agreements

 

24.     The developer may request that the Council enter into an infrastructure agreement(s) that may include any of the matters contained in the conditions of this approval. The infrastructure agreement may vary the conditions of the approval to the extent agreed by the Council providing those variations are generally in accordance with the conditions.

 

Avoiding Nuisance

 

25.     All lighting of the site, including temporary lighting, shall be such that the lighting intensity does not exceed 8.0 lux at a distance of 1.5 metres from the site at any property boundary.

 

26.     No nuisance is to be caused to adjoining properties and occupiers by the way of smoke, dust, rubbish, contaminant, stormwater discharge or siltation at any time, including non-working hours.

 

27.     The approved development and the premises shall be maintained in a clean and tidy condition.

 

28.     Unsealed internal roads are to be watered upon receipt of any complaint regarding dust nuisance caused by vehicle movements to and from the site, as determined by and to the satisfaction of Council.

 

Latest versions

 

29.     Where another condition refers to a specific published standard, manual or guideline, including specifications, drawings, provisions and criteria within those documents, that condition shall be deemed as referring to the latest versions of those publications that are publicly available at the time the first operational works or compliance approval is lodged with the assessment manager or approval agency for those types of works to be performed or approved, unless a regulation or law requires otherwise.

 

No Cost to Council

 

30.     The developer is responsible for meeting all costs associated with the approved development unless there is specific agreement by other parties, including the Council, to meeting those costs.

 

31.     Any conflicts associated with proposed and existing services shall be forwarded by the developer to the appropriate controlling authority for approval for any proposed changes.

 

32.     All civil and related work shall be designed and supervised by Registered Professional Engineers of Queensland (RPEQ) who are competent in the construction of the works.
