Department of Defence

In October 1996 the Department of Defence proposed to establish the Bradshaw Field Training Area, a manoeuvre and field live firing training area at Bradshaw Station, a cattle station near Timber Creek within the Victoria River Region of the Northern Territory.

In accordance with the NT Environmental Assessment Act, in November 1996 the NT Minister for Lands, Planning and Environment determined that an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Environment Management Plan was to be prepared for the proposal. The proposal was also subject to the Commonwealth's Environment Protection (Impact of Proposals) Act 1974, and it was further determined that a joint assessment between the Commonwealth and the NT was appropriate, with the Territory undertaking to lead the assessment process.
