To get an approval, your application will go through a referral process and your referral will be the principal basis for the Minister's decision.
Whether an action is likely to have a significant impact is dependent on the sensitivity, value and quality of the environment and the specifics of the impact.
If you are unsure about your action and significant impacts, it is possible to have a pre-referral meeting. Please see the attached resources on pre-referral meetings for more information.
Your referral approval can be started and submitted via the Online Services resource.
