Clearing decisions available for public appeal

 Most of our decisions on clearing matters under Part V of the Environmental Protection Act 1986 may be appealed. Appeals must be lodged in writing within 21 calendar days of the applicant/permit holder being notified of the decision.

The types of decisions that members of the public can appeal are when we:

  • grant or undertake to grant a new clearing permit – including those we assess in accordance with the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 under the assessment bilateral agreement
  • amend an existing clearing permit (other than an administrative amendment, such as to correct clerical errors or to implement a ministerial determination).

Decisions currently open for public appeal are listed in the table below.

The table does not include decisions when members of the public cannot appeal. These include where we:

  • refuse a permit or refuse to amend a permit
  • accept a permit surrender or grant a transfer
  • grant a permit pursuant to an undertaking to grant
  • make a determination on a clearing referral.

The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) makes decisions to grant or amend clearing permits related to mineral and petroleum activities. Those decisions currently available for appeal are listed on the DMIRs website.

For further information, including how to lodge an appeal, go to the Office of the Appeal Convenor’s website.

The relevant application form, final decision report, and granted or amended permit (as applicable) for appealable decisions are available via the links below.
