There are no pre requisite for obtaining a development permit for operational works to construct or raise a waterway barrier works.
However, applicants may choose to apply for a fish movement exemption notice from the the Department under the Fisheries Act 1994 before applying for a development permit. Holding a fish movement exemption notice would greatly help the applicant at the development permit application stage.
Applicants have to provide the following at the lodgement of a development approval application:
Competed IDAS application (Form One. Part 1 and all other parts relevant to the proposed development must be completed)
All fees including assessment fee and, if relevant, Departmental assessment fee
If the land on which the proposed development will occur is not owned by the applicant, owners consent must be obtained
If the land is in a declared Fish Habitat Area, a resource allocation authority must be obtained from the Department before a development permit application is lodged.
You may also need to consult with the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy regarding additional applications under the Water Act 2000.
