Residents are being reminded they have just one week to make submissions in regard to a sand mine development being proposed for Anna Bay.

Last month applicant Tattersall Lander, acting on behalf of Hay Enterprises, lodged a DA with Port Stephens Council for a sand mine which proposes to extract 50,000 cubic metres of sand a year over 30 years, with an extra 80 truck movements (40 movements in and 40 out) a day.

The land is situated off Nelson Bay Road behind the Baylife Church in Anna Bay,

At a public meeting held in September 2018, residents expressed concerns about the increase in the number of 35-tonne truck movements along busy Nelson Bay Road.

Details of the application are available on the council's DA tracker website and residents have until November 15, 2019, to make submissions.

The consent authority for the project lies with the Hunter and Central Coast Regional Planning Panel (HCCRPP).

Anyone wishing to make a submission can do so via email at council@portstephens.nsw.gov.au or write to PO Box 42 Raymond Terrace NSW 2324.
