Proponent: Hillview Quarries Pty Ltd
Hillview Quarries proposes to extend a granite quarry adjacent to the Arthurs Seat State Park in the Mornington Peninsula that ceased operation in 1998.
The proposal is to expand the former pit to an area of approximately 38 ha (into 115 and within 121 Boundary Road, Dromana) to support a quarry operation for approximately 70 years.
The project would also include a crushing plant, product handling and stockpiles, internal roads and ancillary facilities. Access is proposed to be via Boundary Road.
Hillview Quarries will prepare a communication and consultation plan for the EES, outlining the opportunities and approaches for its community engagement during the preparation of the EES. The plan will be refined following advice from DELWP and the Technical Reference Group and, when completed, will be published on this web page. The consultation process may be adapted or modified to meet changing community needs and requirements.

After considering public submissions on the draft scoping requirements, the Minister for Planning issued final scoping requirements in March 2019.
To assist with the interpretation of the final scoping requirements, please view questions and answers containing guidance on their development here.
