The Department of the Chief Minister and Cabinet is proposing to construct a new hybrid power station (solar and diesel) to supply electricity to the township of Jabiru.
The NT EPA invites public comment on the referral for standard assessment, submitted by the Department of the Chief Minister and Cabinet to develop the Jabiru Power Station. The referral documents are available below, or can be obtained by contacting the NT EPA. Interested persons may make a submission by 7 May 2021. The NT EPA gives this notice in accordance with regulation 52(1) of the Environment Protection Regulations 2020.
Why we are consulting
Your feedback plays an important role and will be considered by the NT EPA in deciding whether the proposed action requires environmental impact assessment, and if so the required method of assessment. Consultation helps the NT EPA and proponent to identify issues of concern and potential effects, as well as get feedback from stakeholders on project options or potential mitigation measures. The NT EPA has prepared guidance for making a public submission PDF (254.3 KB) that outlines when comments will be sought, how to make an effective comment and what will happen to your comment.
Refer to the environmental impact assessment register for Jabiru Power Station for more information.
