Our Munster Plant is surrounded by the Kwinana EPP Area, which is referred to in town planning policies as the Kwinana Air Quality Buffer (KAQB). The plant is located at the northern 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 is located within the planning area of the Hope Valley Wattleup Redevelopment Project and the surrounding land, maintains its rural zoning.
The majority of complaints about the plant are received from an older residential area immediately north of the site that lies within the KAQB and includes Britannia Ave, Fanstone Ave and East Churchill Ave.
To the north east of the site, approximately 1.5 kilometres from our stacks, a substantial new residential area has been developed and is home for several thousand people.
On the western side of the site is Lake Coogee and the light industrial area surrounding the Australian Marine Complex. The Munster Plant is also surrounded to the east and south by market gardens and other small and medium industry. Located to the south of the Munster Plant are quarries operated by LandCorp and a large waste landfill operation operated by the City of Cockburn.
