Lee Point Master-planned Urban Development

Defence Housing Australia

Defence Housing Australia is proposing a development on 132.5 ha of land at Lee Point. The development will be located on the northern edge of Muirhead and Lyons and abut Casuarina Coastal Reserve. The development will include urban residential uses at varying densities, rural residential allotments, land for community development and open spaces.

The Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NT EPA) decided that the Lee Point Master-planned Urban Development required assessment under the Environmental Assessment Act at the level of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on 18 January 2016.

The draft EIS for the Proposal underwent a 12 week public exhibition period between 18 November 2017 and 1 February 2018. A Supplement to the draft EIS was requested on 8 February 2018 and received on 3 August 2018. Updated maps were provided to the NT EPA on 16 October 2018.

The making of Assessment Report 88 and providing it to the Minister on 30 October 2018 marks the completion of the environmental impact assessment by the NT EPA.
