Question

I refer to a letter from the Radiological Council to the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation - Contaminated Sites, on 24 July 2018 and to the letter from the Radiological Council to Millennium Inorganic Chemicals Ltd, dated 4 July 2000, both tabled by Hon Stephen Dawson on 4 Dec 2018, and I ask:
(a) will the Minister provide a copy of the Memorandum of Understanding signed in late 2000 or early 2001 by Cristal Pigment Australia, formerly Millennium Inorganic Chemicals, and the Joint Venture between Housing Authority and Satterley Property Group in which the buffer area was agreed;
(b) if no to (a), why not;
(c) which government department approved the buffer area between Cristal Pigment Australia, formerly Millennium Inorganic Chemicals, Shire of Capel and the joint venture between the Housing Authority and Satterley Property Group; and
(d) why was the Radiological Council not informed of any buffer areas prior to July 2018?

Answered on 6 June 2019

(a) Yes, [see tabled paper no. ] which is the MOU between Millennium Inorganic Chemicals and the Joint Venture between Housing Authority and Satterley Property Group which provides detail of a “deferred residential
     development area”.

     A “deferred residential development area” is an area that has been identified for future urban development. The MOU refers to a 75 metre area between residential allotments that is not to be developed for residential purposes
     until 1 November 2003, including land sales.

(b) Not applicable. 

(c) There is no buffer area. 

(d) No formal approved buffer area is known to exist.
