Cockburn Cement- Munster Plant
(1) How many homes exist within the air quality buffer zone around Cockburn Cement’s Munster plant?
(2) Is the construction of new homes permitted in the buffer zone?
(3) Why are some residents permitted to live within the buffer around the Cockburn Cement plant?
Hon ROBYN McSWEENEY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
(1) There are 153 homes and approximately 10 vacant rural blocks within the Cockburn Cement buffer area.
(2)–(3) A landowner is legally permitted to construct a single dwelling on a lot. The Kwinana air quality buffer does not prohibit the construction of residential dwellings but does not support the intensification of residential uses, either through the rezoning of land or further subdivision. This position is reflected in the City of Cockburn’s rural subdivision policy APD7.
