Overview

Queensland's Coordinator-General invites you to have your say on the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Lindeman Great Barrier Reef Resort Project.

Prepared by the project proponent, White Horse Australia Lindeman Pty Ltd, the draft EIS describes the project and its potential environmental impacts, both positive and negative. The draft EIS was prepared in accordance with terms of reference approved by the Coordinator-General.

A component of the project is within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and will require permission from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) under the Great Barrier Reef Marine Parks Act 1973.  This invitation for submissions also invites comments on the proposal to the GBRMPA, on matters associated with the Marine Park.  Interested parties, including those who believe the proposal will restrict their reasonable use of this part of the Marine Park, are invited to lodge written comments on the proposal to GBRMPA, via the Coordinator-General.  Should you wish your submission to be assessed by GBRMPA, your submission must also be addressed to GBRMPA, via one of the above methods. This is a requirement of section 88D of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Regulations 1983.
