In line with legislative reform, all self-assessable codes for fisheries development have been replaced by accepted development requirements documents.
Accepted development requirements apply to low impact projects involving operational works for constructing or raising a waterway barrier; all operational and building works in a declared Fish Habitat Area; operational works that disturb marine plants, and material change of use of premises for aquaculture. That is those works that will have only a minor impact on the environment and community.
For a development to be accepted it must comply with all of the requirements within the relevant accepted development requirements document. Ensure that the development complies with all requirements before proceeding. If the development does not comply, it is classified as an assessable development and a development application must be lodged with the State Assessment and Referral Agency (SARA).
