THE CLARENCE Valley Council has been given the green light to go ahead with its $13.3million super depot in South Grafton.

The independent Northern Joint Regional Planning Panel (JRPP) met in Grafton today and approved an application to construct the new works depot and administration building on the corner of Skinner and Tyson streets.

The proposal includes a workshop, stores building, vehicle parking and related ancillary structures on site.

The panel chair, Garry West, said the decision was made after hearing community and stakeholder submissions.

"The proposal is consistent with the zoning of the land and an Environment Protection Authority accredited site auditor will oversee the remediation of the site before any development occurs," Mr West said.

The JRPP has approved the application, subject to conditions including a health and safety plan and noise and vibration management plan.
