Planning and environmental impact assessment process – the EPA's role
The EPA is providing advice to DIT about how to prevent or minimise air quality, noise, site contamination, waste, wastewater and water quality impacts associated with the design, construction and operational components of the project.
The EPA’s input into the planning system helps ensure that development is located, designed and constructed to prevent or minimise impacts on the environment, human health, amenity, and promotes ecologically sustainable development
For those ancillary components of the T2D project that will require development approval (eg temporary concrete batching plants, asphalt plants and potentially waste soil recovery facilities) the EPA will be formally consulted under the Planning Development and Infrastructure Act 2016. In these instances the EPA will direct the relevant planning authority about whether such development should be approved and, if so, what conditions should be attached to any development approval.
As further details are made available by DIT in regard to the T2D project, this website will be updated. If you would like to learn more about the T2D Project, please sign up to receive electronic updates or download fact sheets
