Public participation is an integral part of the Environmental Authorisation Process and is a process by which the State and the Project Team are able to consult with interested and affected individuals, organisations and government entities before making a decision.

Therefore as per the principles of Integrated Environmental Management, i.e. transparency and fairness, this page provides a list of current projects, its project status and invite public participation during the highlighted timeframe.
