All Critical State Significant Infrastructure development applications must be accompanied by an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The purpose of an EIS is to identify and assess the potential environmental, economic and social impacts of the project to help government agencies, relevant authorities, community and stakeholders make an informed decision or provide an informed submission on the merits of the project. 

On August 30, 2023 the EIS was lodged to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) and placed on public exhibition. The EIS public exhibition commenced 30 August 2023 and concluded Tuesday 10 October, 2023. 

A series of detailed technical studies and reports were completed as part of the EIS. The fact sheets and videos on this page provide a summary of key technical studies, the methodology we used to identify and assess potential project impacts, our findings and how we manage or minimise them.
