Swan Coastal Plain LakesRelease Date:
18 December 1992Details:
Summary: The purpose of this policy is to protect the environmental values of lakes on the Swan Coastal Plain. The EPP was gazetted in 1992, together with Miscellaneous Plan No. 1815 which depicted lakes protected under the policy. The EPP made the filling, draining, excavating, polluting and clearing of these lakes an offence unless authorised by the EPA.
The policy was subject to a statutory review in 1999. On 23 August 2006 the Minister for the Environment announced to Parliament that he will not approve the revised draft Environmental Protection (Swan Coastal Plain Wetlands) Policy 2004.
The 1992 Lakes EPP remains in force.
