360 Environmental has extensive experience facilitating and managing environmental approvals, permitting and compliance for large to small-scale infrastructure projects.
Along with State and Federal Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) processes, a number of approvals may be required to enable clearing activities and ground disturbance. The various Western Australian legislation applicable to each case is dependent on the level of impact, the natural resources and attributes of the site, underlying tenure of the site and previous approval and legislation applicable (e.g. State agreement acts).
The major regulatory departments who deal with permitting and approvals include the Office of the Environmental Protection Authority, Environmental Protection Authority, Department of Environment Regulation, Department of Water, Department of Aboriginal Affairs, Department of Parks and Wildlife and local government.
360 Environmental has extensive experience in liaising with these Departments, and our staff includes many ex-regulatory personnel competent in these regulatory processes and requirements. 360 Environmental can assist with all aspects of approvals. The earlier the constraints and opportunities of a site can be understood the quicker the approvals can be progressed.
