The Victorian Parliament’s Environment and Natural Resources Committee (ENRC) has conducted an inquiry into the operation of the environmental effects statement process (EIA process) under the Environmental Effects Act 1978.
The Committee sought submissions from the public on the review. The resulting recommendations were released by ENRC on 1 September 2011.
The State Government must respond to the ENRC recommendations within six months of their release.
We made a submission to the inquiry and prepared a briefing note summarising our views on the ENRC recommendations.
