There are currently two facilities operating under the Mayfield Concept Approval:
- SSD_7065 Stolthaven Bulk Fuel Terminal; and
- DA 8137 Mayfield Cargo Storage Facility
As the proponent of the Mayfield Concept Plan Approval, Port of Newcastle publishes monitoring data on environmental performance.
Air Monitoring and Management
Ambient air quality and wind data is currently monitored via the NSW EPA Lower Hunter Air Quality Monitoring Network.
The parameters monitored within the network are a basic set of fine particulates, combustion gases and wind speed and direction. This set of parameters is able to provide a qualitative assessment of the impact on local air quality from the current activities within the Mayfield Concept Plan area until such time that future operations in the Mayfield Concept Plan area trigger the need for a higher level of monitoring.
Traffic Monitoring and Review
Traffic Monitoring data is provided by individual tenants operating under the Concept Plan Approval to Port of Newcastle on a bi-monthly basis.
Port of Newcastle will regularly review Traffic Monitoring data. Port of Newcastle will prepare a Transport Infrastructure Strategy in consultation with agencies to help inform their planning of road and rail service provision and infrastructure upgrades.
