Update on development application
Work on the development application and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is continuing. When finalised the EIS will be lodged with Central Highlands Council and the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). After it has been accepted by the EPA it will put on public exhibition. An update will be issued to notify the community of the exhibition dates for the EIS when this is known, along with information on how to make a submission.
The EPA will also assess the proposal under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act), under the bilateral agreement between the Tasmanian and Federal Governments.
