Orica obtained Development Approval in 2013 to subdivide the former CPWE area and adjacent lands from the BIP for commercial or industrial use as it was surplus to Orica's requirements.
In 2015 Orica sold the former CPWE area and adjacent land (2.39 hectares). An area on the corner of Denison Street and Corish Circle (3.9 hectares) has also been sold.
In 2016 Orica relocated the clean treated soil stockpile to three locations at the BIP and undertook ancillary civil works necessary prior to the development of the former CPWE area and adjacent lands. This work included the relocation of an existing internal BIP private access roadway, removal of some trees, and building of some retaining walls. The work was conducted in accordance with a modification to the CPWE Project Approval issued by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment and a detailed Environmental Management Plan.
Orica has not applied for any development, use or rezoning of the land that has been sold. Any use of that land will require a Development Application to be prepared by the purchaser.
