The Bunderra site comprises an area of 207.25 hectares, incorporating the former Pasminco lead smelter site and land owned by Incitec Fertilisers Ltd, all of which is being remediated.
The main site extends from Cardiff and Argenton to Boolaroo and east of Boolaroo to Macquarie Hills.
The general plan for the Bunderra site is:
Following the preparation of a Master Plan and submissin of a Local Environmental Study to LMCC, the State Government in December 2011 rezoned the remaining site (being the balance not previously rezoned in September 2010), including part of the IFL site. The rezoning changed the approved land use from heavy industrial zoning to a range of land uses including light industrial, commercial, residential and open space. Residential will now be the predominant permissible use.
Future rezoning works and development applications on and around the site continue.
