I have attached our objection letter. Would be appreciated if the concerns could be considered. Thank you.
Fire and Rescue NSW
Waste facilities present ‘special problems of firefighting’ that warrant classification as ‘special hazards’, and consideration of provision for special hazards under Clause E1.10 and E2.3 of the NCC.

FRNSW have reviewed the EIS and make the following recommendations:

1. To ensure that the fire prevention, detection, protection and firefighting measures are appropriate to the specific fire hazards and adequate to meet the extent of potential fires, a comprehensive Fire Safety Study (FSS) is recommended to be undertaken.

2. That the FSS is developed in accordance with the requirements of Hazardous Industry Planning Advisory Paper No.2 (HIPAP No.2).

3. That the FSS is required to be developed in consultation with FRNSW. Approval of the FSS by both FRNSW and NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment should be a condition of consent.

4. That the development of the FSS considers the operational capability of local fire agencies and the need for the facility to achieve an adequate level of on-site fire and life safety independence.

5. FRNSW preference is to review the Preliminary Hazards Analysis (PHA) report as this will determine the approach and design of the recommended fire safety study.
