The study is a regional supply and demand analysis of the basic raw materials such as sand, gravel, hard rock and limestone required on the Bunbury- Busselton Coastal Plain to 2030.
The Basic Raw Materials Demand and Supply Study for the Bunbury-Busselton Region is an important tool in ensuring that the raw materials necessary for development of the region are identified and secured. It uses a new geo-science based mapping technique complied in conjunction with the Department of Mines and Petroleum to identify locations containing significant supplies of basic raw materials on the coastal plain.
Sites identified in the study do not have any priority or pre-approval for extraction and any approval for extraction will require compliance with appropriate State and Federal legislation.
The study and maps will help with the management of sites containing basic raw materials that are of regional significance and contribute to planning for the future development of the South West.
