We Did

The EPA declared the proposal to be derived and issued a notice under s39B with a statement of reasons on 16 February 2015.

Overview

The EPA has received a referral of a proposal from Gold Fusion Pty Ltd and a request that the proposal be declared a derived proposal identified in Ministerial Statement 845 for the construction of 3.9 kilometre wastewater pressure main. The pressure main would be constructed within the western portion of the Soldier Road road reserve, Mundijong.

Having received this referral and request, the EPA is required to consider whether to declare the referred proposal to be a derived proposal under section 39B of the Environmental Protection Act 1986.

In making its decision whether to declare the referred proposal derived, the EPA will consider the following:

  • Was the referred proposal identified in an assessed strategic proposal?
  • Was a decision/agreement made that the referred proposal could be implemented?
  • Does the referred proposal raise environmental issues that were not adequately assessed when the strategic proposal was assessed?
  • Is there significant new or additional information that justifies reassessment of issues raised by the referred proposal?
  • Has there been a significant change in the relevant environmental factors since the strategic proposal was assessed?


With reference to the five points above, this is your opportunity to give us your views on whether or not this referral should be declared a derived proposal, and to provide information to support your view.

What Happens Next

The EPA will consider all comments on LandCorp's referral received during the seven-day public comment period in making its decision on whether to declare it a derived proposal in the context of Ministerial Statement 863 for the Rockingham Industrial Zone.
