Opened 21 Jul 2017

Overview

Kimberley Technology Solutions Pty Ltd is referring the Cockatoo Island Multi-User Supply Base to develop an upgraded airfield, a wharf and an aftermarket subsea workshop as well as other related support infrastructure. The proposal is located on Cockatoo Island in the Shire of Derby.

The proposal would include a loss of 0.54 hectares (ha) of hard coral and algae of which 0.3 ha is very sparse hard coral. The proposed new wharf would run parallel to the shoreline.

The impacts to terrestrial vegetation are based on the loss of 34.23 ha of native vegetation and fauna habitat

Why We Are Consulting

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

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