EMM was initially engaged to prepare the Environmental Impact Assessment and the planning approvals for a major new brewery in Goulburn. The project represents a significant revitalisation of former warehousing facility and a major opportunity for employment and economic diversification for the Goulburn Mulwaree community. The proposal will convert an existing warehouse on the site of a former Coles distribution centre. EMM’s Planning Team coordinated the preparation of the DA and EIS, and managed a team of technical specialists to address issues such as noise, odour and traffic. The Planning Team also ran a community information and feedback session in the vacant warehouse to provide information on the project and answer questions from the local community. Over 150 local residents, business owners, councillors and council staff attended the feedback session. The local community showed a lot of support for the substantial employment benefits the proposal will bring to Goulburn.
