Revised draft EIS or IAR
After considering the draft EIS/IAR and submissions made on the draft EIS/IAR, the Coordinator-General may ask the project proponent to provide additional information. The additional information may be included within, or attached to, the draft EIS/IAR. It is submitted to the Coordinator-General as a 'revised draft EIS' or 'revised draft IAR'.
What is additional information?
A revised draft EIS/IAR could include:
- corrections, clarification and further information to that provided in the draft EIS or IAR - as requested in state government advisory agency and public submissions
- results from additional studies requested by advisory agencies or the Coordinator-General
- a description of any changes or refinements to the project proposed by the proponent since the draft EIS/IAR was released.
The Coordinator-General may decide to release the revised draft EIS/IAR for public comment – similar to that which occurred for the draft EIS/IAR. For example, public comment may be required when the additional information is considered to be substantial or there are refinements to the project since the release of the draft EIS/IAR.
Advisory agency input
Regardless of whether public consultation occurs, advisory agencies are invited to:
- comment on the adequacy of the additional information in addressing matters raised in their submissions on the draft EIS/IAR
- recommend conditions for the Coordinator-General's consideration in preparing his report on the EIS/IAR.
