Potential chemical manufacturing plant in New Chum


A new chemical manufacturing plant in Ipswich is being considered after a detailed assessment by the council and state government.

The site would be in New Chum and would see the former mining site of 5 years changed into a chemical plant after business operations shifted and showed the desire to sell chemicals overseas. 

After a detailed report was given including a risk assessment report with improvements to security and dealing with environmental factors the council recommended approval of the application.
