Welcome to Specialised Sand & Soil

Specialised Sand and Soil (SSS) leases an operational sand and soil quarry owned by GDK Investments Pty Ltd on Pitnacree Road, Raworth, with a view to expanding its current extraction and blending operations.  The site has a current Development Consent Number 84011 issued by Maitland City Council.  A modification of this consent was proposed, accompanied by a Statement of Environmental Effects.  Maitland Council has granted the modification, subject to conditions detailed in Appendix A.  Condition 2 required an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) to be submitted to Council and reviewed annually.  The inaugural EMP was submitted to Maitland City Council in September 2008.


The site is at the end of Pitnacree Road, East Maitland adjacent to the Hunter River.
The site has been used as a quarry since development consent was issued by Maitland City Council in 1984. Surrounding land is zoned 1(a) Prime Rural Land under the Maitland City Council Local Environmental Plan 1993 and is used for a mixture of grazing properties and farming.
