Statement of environmental effects

A Statement of Environmental Effects (SEE) is required to be submitted with every development application. The SEE is a document that outlines the impacts of a proposed development and outlines any steps taken to protect the environment and to manage impacts. The statement should address the following matters:
  • A full description of the proposed development, including operational details
  • The environmental impacts of the proposed development
  • How the environmental impacts of the proposed development have been identified
  • The steps to be taken to protect the environment or to lessen the expected harm to the environment, and
  • Whether or not the proposed development complies with the Council policies (i.e. LEP and DCP) and any other applicable legislation or planning instruments. Justification for any part that does not comply with policies or legislation should be provided in the statement.
The information in the SEE will be used to assess the impact of the proposal, and provides an opportunity to detail information that may not be shown on plans.
