Environmentally Relevant Activities

Can I amend an existing Environmental Authority?

To make any amendments to an existing environmental authority the operator must submit an Application to Amend an EA with the relevant fee to Council. Council may refuse to process your application if you have any fees outstanding.

Depending on the type of amendment, additional supporting information may be required to be submitted.

Application - Amend an Environmental Authority

Do you want this in? To complete the amendment application form you will need to supply certain details regarding your proposed amendment (e.g. technical assessments of the impacts of the change on environmental values).  For more information on how to determine the impact on environmental values refer to the relevant technical guidelines.

Note: Development permits for ERA’s are not transferable as the conditions apply to the land itself. If you purchase the land parcel you will also acquire the development permit. Please contact Council’s Planning Department for further information regarding Development permits.
