You are invited to have your say on the SDA application for a material change of use for port facilities (Terminal 1) in the Abbot Point State Development Area (SDA).

Adani Abbot Point Terminal Pty Ltd has lodged an SDA application that seeks to increase throughput of their existing Terminal 1 facility by 10 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) – from 50 Mtpa to 60 Mtpa.

The proponent is proposing a new conveyor and transfer tower, an increase to the speed of existing yard machine elevator conveyors and out-loading conveyors, and additional stockpile dust suppression to existing Terminal 1 stockpile areas.

A copy of the SDA application and supporting information is provided below for download. To request a hard copy contact the State Development Areas Division. Charges may apply.
