The Proposal

The proponent had lodged a Permit Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to West Tamar Council.

The application was referred to the Board of the Environment Protection Authority (the Board) for assessment under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA).


Public Exhibition of Documentation

A copy of the permit application and all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the DPEMP) were madeavailable for public inspection. The public comment period is now closed.


 

Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan

The DPEMP was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the Project Specific Guidelines for preparation of a DPEMP which were provided by the Board.
