SSI projects are large, complex and can have major economic, environmental and social impacts. Community consultation is an important part the state significant infrastructure (SSI) assessment process.
The community can sign up to receive updates on the progress of the SSI application via the project page on the department’s Major Projects website.
The environmental impact statement (EIS) for an SSI project must be on exhibition for at least 28 days. The exhibition provides an opportunity for the community and other stakeholders including government agencies to have their say on the project.
The department also notifies relevant government agencies of the exhibition and meets with key stakeholders to get a better understanding of community views on the project.
During the exhibition period, anyone may make a written submission. Details on how to make a submission are available on the project page of the department’s Major Projects website.
Feedback received during this period is considered and informs the final decision on how the project is determined.
