Projects Not Requiring Assessment

In February 2017, the Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NT EPA) established a public register of proposals that do not require environmental impact assessment (EIA). In making the decision that a proposal does not require EIA, the NT EPA will have examined details of the proposal in consultation with NT Government agencies, and undertaken preliminary investigations and inquiries about the proposal’s potential environmental impacts and risks.

To explain such decisions, the NT EPA will also publish a ‘Statement of Reasons’ thereby enhancing transparency and public confidence about those decisions made under the Environmental Assessment Act.

Where the NT EPA has decided that the impacts of the proposal are not so significant as to warrant an EIA under the Environmental Assessment Act, the NT EPA may recommend proposal-specific environmental conditions be imposed under other approving legislation to ensure that environmental issues associated with the proposal are effectively managed.
