An Environmental Effects Statement (EES) is required by the State Government in accordance with legislation.
Scoping Requirements for the EES were set by the Minister for Planning following public input.
Comprehensive technical studies have been undertaken by independent technical experts to assess all potential impacts and identify measures to avoid, minimise and mitigate any potential impacts.
Key technical studies, such as Water, Air Quality and Rehabilitation, have undergone independent peer review.
The EES has been overseen by the Department of Environment, Land Water and Planning, with input and advice from a Technical Reference Group made up of all relevant government agencies and authorities.
