Permission sought for above-ground diesel tank

Permission has been sought from Central Coast Council to install a new, 30,000 litre above-ground diesel tank at a service station in Memorial Ave, Blackwall.

The Caltex Australia application seeks Council's permission to install the self-bunded diesel storage tank and associated infrastructure at 62-68 Memorial Ave, Blackwall.

A Statement of Environmental Effects was submitted to Council in support of the DA which stated the proposal did not "seek an enlargement or expansion of the existing operations at the site".

"Upon completion of the works, there will be no operational or aesthetic changes to the service station, apart from the new above-ground fuel system.

"The site is zoned IN1 - General Industrial under the Gosford Local Environmental Plan 2014.

"A service station is a permissible use within the IN1 zone and the proposed ancillary works are permissible.

"The proposal including tank installation works, complies with the relevant provisions of the LEP 2014 and various relevant legislation applicable to the proposed development.

"The principle potential concerns addressed in detail as part of this application relate to contamination, noise, dust, odour and safety.

"Where necessary, mitigation measures are proposed to minimise impact and reduce potential risk associated with the development.

"Given the merit of the design of the proposal and the absence of any significant adverse environmental impacts, the DA is considered to be in the public's interest and worthy of Council's support," the Statement concluded.
