The Calvert to Kagaru draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) public display commenced on Saturday 19 December 2020 and concluded on Monday 8 March 2021.
The Coordinator-General has evaluated the draft EIS, including public exhibition submissions, and in September 2021, requested ARTC to provide further information regarding the environmental impacts of the project and submit a revised draft EIS.
A total of 846 public submissions were received on the draft EIS which the Coordinator-General has provided ARTC to respond to. The response to the submissions will be included as part of the revised draft EIS.
ARTC will review the request for additional information, undertake additional field work, update the applicable draft EIS chapters and submit a revised draft EIS.
The Coordinator-General also decided the revised draft EIS will be publicly notified. Details for further public consultation will be provided in 2022 along with information on how you can have your say.
