Australia: Wyanga Holdings, Australian quarry specialists, has settled out of court after it was taken before the Land and Environment Court for exceeding its extraction limits.

Wyanga Holdings, the New South Wales Roads and Maritime Services Department (RMA) and the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) were set to appear before Justice Sheahan at the NSW Land and Environment Court on 27 November 2013. However, Wyanga Holdings withdrew its appeal on the day over its Corindi Quarry licence issues and agreed to pay costs to the EPA and RMS in the appeal.

In August 2013 the EPA suspended Wyanga Holdings' licence for the quarry for seriously breaching the extraction limits on its license. Wyanga had extracted more than 368,000t of aggregate despite the extraction limit of 50,000t/yr.

Wyanga Holdings will now have to lodge a development application with Coffs Harbour City Council for consent to operate the quarry in excess of its original licence. The council rejected an earlier application.
