Former Talbot Quarry – 1221-1249 Centre Road, Oakleigh South

Community feedback sought by 20 December 2021

Council is seeking community feedback on an application seeking approval for ongoing remediation and rehabilitation works on the site of the former Talbot Road Quarry at 1221-1249 Centre Road, Oakleigh South.

Feedback is sought by Monday 20 December 2021. However, Council will continue to accept submissions on this proposal up until it makes a decision. 

The scope of works is within the north-west corner of the land, known as Zone 1 that comprises a former quarry pit which had been used as a municipal landfill. The application is for ground improvement preloading works and temporary landfill gas venting trench.

The proposal forms part of a staged approach of works identified under the Environment Audit completed in 2020 to enable future development.

The application proposes earthworks of stockpiles that involve bringing clean fill onto the site to ‘preload’ the existing fill to assist with ground consolidation and settlement.

The proposed gas venting trench is to be installed as a precautionary measures in case land fill gas migration was to occur during ground improvement. The gas venting trench is proposed to be installed prior to the stockpiling works.

An online community information session will be held on Monday 6 December 2021.

Enquiries: Anne Maree Roberts, Principal Planner (Major Projects), on 9518 3658.
