Hypermarket Pty Ltd proposes to develop seven short stay units on Lot 304 Sunday Island Bay, Dirk Hartog Island. Approximately 5 per cent of the 11.3 hecatre lot will be developed for this proposal, and Lot 304 is located within the Shark Bay World Heritage Area and adjacent to the Dirk Hartog Island National Park and Shark Bay Marine Park.
The EPA notes that the proponent proposes wind turbines and desalination plants for each unit, however no detail has been provided regarding the layout, design or potential environmental impacts of either wind turbines or desalination plants in this location. The EPA has therefore not assessed or considered these elements of the proposal. The EPA recommends consultation with the Department of Parks and Wildlife (Parks and Wildlife) on these matters.
