Chairman Gerard Early, Dr Tom Hatton and Glen McLeod assessed the Minister for State Development’s strategic proposal to designate a common-user LNG precinct to process up to 50 million tonnes per annum of gas from the Browse Basin near James Price Point in the Kimberley.
Mr Early said the strategic proposal identified port facilities, shipping channels, LNG processing facilities, pipeline crossings, infrastructure, a light industrial area, roads and worker accommodation area.
The Environmental Protection Authority has recommended approval for the mining of a new Pilbara iron ore deposit, subject to a set of environmental conditions.
The biological communities that occur in Western Australia’s marine waters are largely shaped by the climatic regime, underlying geological structures, and the intensity of – and exposure to – wave and tidal energy.
The range of ecosystems, coupled with our relative isolation, has resulted in a very high diversity of marine life, much of which is found nowhere else in the world. The EPA considers the key ‘Sea’ factors of benthic communities and habitat, coastal processes, marine environmental quality and marine fauna in its assessment of significant proposals and schemes.
The EPA undertakes the environmental impact assessment (EIA) of some proposals and schemes referred to it under Part IV of the Environmental Protection Act 1986 (the EP Act). EIA is a systematic and orderly evaluation of a proposal and its impact on the environment. The assessment includes considering ways in which the proposal, if implemented, could avoid or reduce any impact on the environment.
One of the EPA’s key roles is to provide Government with advice on the environmental acceptability of development proposals and statutory planning schemes. Development proposals include proposals for mining, industry as well as infrastructure such as ports, railways and pipelines. Planning schemes include both statutory planning schemes and their amendments.
This form is to be used for referral of Planning Schemes and Amendments to the EPA under the Planning and Development Act 2005, the Metropolitan Redevelopment Act 2011 and the Hope Valley Wattleup Redevelopment Act 2000.
All planning schemes and amendments must be referred to the EPA by the responsible authority.
