The EPA believes that public submission and community input has an important role in environmental impact assessment and policy development.
All opportunities for public comment on proposals undergoing environmental impact assessment are now published on the EPA's consultation hub at https://consultation.epa.wa.gov.au. The hub also lists new referrals open for a seven-day public comment period, as well as draft policies and discussion papers as they arise.
New opportunities for public comment and submissions are broadcast on the EPA's Twitter account @EPA_WA and can be subscribed to via RSS feeds from the hub.
We hope providing a single, searchable hub for all consultations will streamline public comment processes and enhance stakeholder visibility of consultation opportunities.
