We have been continuing to engage with our Traditional Owners in the area to be covered by the VMFRP.
This month, we have submitted some more Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (EPBC Act) and Environmental Effect Act (EE Act) submissions to the Victorian state and Australian commonwealth governments. See their websites (below) for more information.
Victorian EE referrals provide an assessment of proposed works which are capable of having a significant effect on the environment.
Commonwealth EPBC referrals provide an assessment of proposed actions that has, will have or is likely to have a significant impact on any matters of national environmental significance.
The Victorian EE referrals can be viewed on the Victorian Planning website
The Commonwealth EPBC referrals can be viewed on the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment website
