Kwinana Air Quality Buffer
Our Munster Plant is surrounded by the Kwinana EPP Area, which
is referred to in relevant town planning policies as the Kwinana
Air Quality Buffer (KAQB). The plant is located at the northern
most tip of Area B of the KAQB, which is the area that includes all
the major industrial premises in the Kwinana Industrial Area. The
Munster Plant, which includes several quarries and is located
within the planning area of the Hope Valley Wattleup Redevelopment
Project and the surrounding land, maintains its traditional rural
The majority of the plant's environmental complaints are associated with an area of Munster immediately north of the site that lies within the KAQB and includes Britannia Ave, Fanstone Ave and East Churchill Ave. We understand that in 2010 this area contained 153 residences and 10 vacant blocks.
To the north east of the site, approximately 1.5 kilometres from our stacks, a substantial new residential area is being developed and is already home to several thousand people.
On the western side of the site are Lake Coogee and the light industrial areas surrounding the Australian Marine Complex. The site is also surrounded to the east and south by market gardens and other medium and small industry. To the south there is a large waste landfill operation operated by the City of Cockburn.
