Cudgegong development long

Jackson Environment and Planning Pty Ltd has been engaged by the developer Boronia Estates Pty Ltd to prepare a Site Waste Management and Minimisation Plan for a proposed multi-story 256 apartment development on Lots 72 and 73, DP 208203, also referred to as 43-53 Cudgegong Rd, Rouse Hill.

The Cudgegong development consists of four partly connected nine level apartment buildings and two basement levels adjacent to the Cudgegong railway station. The project will involve an investment of $83 million. The project has formally received planning approval.

The new revitalised community at Cudgegong Road will benefit from 4,400 new homes close to jobs and transport options. The planning and design phase of the development has been managed by Restifa & Partners Pty Ltd.

In preparing The Site Waste Management and Minimisation Plan, we consulted extensively with the Waste Management Section of Blacktown City Council and commercial waste collection contractors. The plan provides estimates of the volume and weight of waste and recycling generation during the demolition, construction and operational phases of the project.

The plan outlines best practice approaches for clearing two dwellings and a shed on the lots, maximising recovery of materials and safely managing the potential for asbestos.  Details of EPA licenced waste and recycling facilities are provided to ensure sustainable management of all materials.  Estimates of vegetation and recycling of this material is also given.

Estimates of construction waste generation have been prepared, including a plan for source separation and recycling of materials. The majority of waste generated by the development is topsoil, excavated natural material, virgin excavated natural material and rock, all of which will be recycled at lawful facilities.

The operational waste management plan provides best practice systems for storage, separation, recycling and management of mixed waste, mixed recycling, garden organics, food organics, bulky waste and electronic waste. Domestic waste will be minimised by providing safe and convenient source separation and recycling systems, including communal waste chutes for residents in convenient and accessible locations. Waste and recycling storage areas will be well ventilated and have durable and washable finishes, to safely hold waste prior to collection.

To ensure waste storage facilities minimise impacts on the streetscape, building entry and amenity of residents, a bulky waste area for residents will be provided in each basement and garbage collection will be via a dedicated loading bay in the basement of the buildings.

The proposed Site Waste Management and Minimisation Plan will ensure that waste is minimised and recycling is maximised during the demolition, construction and operational phases of the Cudgegong Town Centre Stage 1 development.
