Advice to Minister

The NT EPA may, on its own initiative, or at the request of the Minister, provide advice about:

  • achieving appropriate and effective environmental policy and management for the Territory
  • legislation related to the environment and its administration
  • issues affecting the Territory's capacity to achieve ecologically sustainable development
  • emerging environmental issues
  • the cumulative impacts of development on the environment
  • the environmental quality of the Northern Territory
  • any other matter related to the objectives of the NT EPA.

At the request of the Minister, the NT EPA may also provide advice about any proposal, policy, plan or other measure to manage the environmental impact of development on the environment.

Prior to 2013 the NT EPA could also receive requests from members of the public.
