Current environmental authority application or amendment documents

You have an opportunity to make submissions on environmental authority applications for larger scale geothermal, greenhouse gas storage or petroleum activities and mining activities relating to a mining lease. These submissions will be taken into consideration during assessment.

Note: All submissions should be sent to the address specified in the public notice. Submissions must be received on or before 4.30pm on the last day of the submission period.

For more information about making a submission or for confirmation of the correct address to which submissions should be sent, please contact Permit and Licence Management, Department of Environment and Science:

Unless an application lapses or is withdrawn they are accessible on this web page from the day after the application stage until the review date (which for a petroleum, greenhouse gas or geothermal activity is generally 10 business days after the day the applicant receives notice of the decision), or if a mining lease is referred to the Land Court, the day after the final decision is made or if not referred to Land Court 20 business days after the notice of decision is given.
