In 2017, the project was declared a ‘coordinated project’ by the Coordinator-General (CG).
The preliminary draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was submitted to the CG for review in August 2019.
The Calvert to Kagaru project’s draft EIS public display commenced on Saturday 19 December 2020 and concluded on Monday 8 March 2021.
For more information about the EIS process and next steps, visit the Queensland Coordinator-General’s website.
Check the CG’s website for more information about coordinated projects, how projects requiring an EIS are assessed and how you can have your say.
The Calvert to Kagaru project also requires approval under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Cwlth) (EPBC Act) before it can proceed. The outcomes of the EIS will determine the process in making decisions on approvals.
The final Terms of Reference (ToR) for the EIS was released in December 2017.
