Environmental Impact Assessment for the development of a landfill site
The existing landfill site in Newcastle is rapidly reaching the end of its design life, due to the closure of two sites in the region. As a result a new landfill site will soon be required once the existing site reaches the end of its design life. A number of “candidate sites” have been considered and a preferred site has been selected on account of its geohydrological and geotechnical suitability. This Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIR) has been developed in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Management Act, 1998 (Act No. 107 of 1998) (NEMA) and the 2010 Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Regulations, and the National Environmental Management: Waste Act, 2008 (Act No. 59 of 2008) (NEM:WA).
