We asked

Public comment was invited on the referral to help the EPA determine the appropriate level of assessment.

You said

There were no comments on the referral.

We did

The EPA determined not to assess the proposal. Clearing of vegetation is not significant and will be regulated under the clearing permit system; the loss of seagrass is not significant in a local context; standard procedures will be applied to protect marine fauna from blasting and piling.


The Shire of Coorow proposes to construct a new boating facility in Leeman. The facility comprises dual ramps, a finger jetty, car and trailer parking, toilet block and fish cleaning station.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The Chairman's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
