JWA Pty Ltd have been the ecological consultants on the project since 2016. Our involvement with the project has included assisted our client in securing the very first Environmental Offset Protection Area (EOPA) under section 30 of the QLD Environmental Offsets Act 2014, which also formed part of the first marine plant advanced offset to be registered in the State. We have prepared Land Based Environmental Management Plans (LBEMPs) for each development stage as required under the project EPBC Act approval. We have also completed Significant Residual Impact Assessment as required by the QLD Environmental Offsets Act 2014 and developed Offset Delivery Plans for impacts on marine plants.
