Potential cumulative impacts of the activities and developments proposed for Exmouth Gulf

In August 2020 the Minister for Environment made a request to the EPA to provide strategic advice under Section 16(e) of the Environmental Protection Act 1986 on the potential cumulative impacts of the proposed activities and developments on the social, cultural and environmental values of Exmouth Gulf.

The EPA has agreed to this request from the Minister for Environment to provide strategic advice on the potential cumulative impacts of proposed activities and developments on the values of Exmouth Gulf.

The cumulative impact study will be completed by June 2021 and will take into account a number of new and existing potentially significant proposals in and around the Exmouth gulf.

The Minister expects this strategic advice will be material to consideration of the EPA’s final reports on the Subsea 7 Pipeline Fabrication Facility proposal, the Shire of Exmouth rezoning and other proposals in the assessments process.
