Environmental Approvals and Compliance

Activities involving development of land or a change in landuse often require consent and /or licence. Local Government is usually the responsible authority for issuing planning consent (or development consent in NSW) with conditions set by referral authorities. Where consent or a licence is required for a proposed development that has an impact on the environment during construction or operation, then a report is required to describe the environmental assets, discuss the impact and how impacts will be avoided, minimised and offset.

Examples of proposed developments requiring consent are structures, pumps and pipelines in or near a waterway, pipelines under a main road, extraction of soil sand or gravel, discharge of wastewater to land, or removal of native vegetation (Vic). Compliance relates to addressing conditions on an existing planning permit or licence.

We have compiled reports for regulatory purposes for Government departments, private developers, landholders, contractors and wineries.

We can meet on site with regulatory authorities to determine their concerns, undertake a site assessment and compile a report to the appropriate level of detail. We are experienced in managing the entire approvals process including liaison with agencies and submitting the applications required.
