Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has submitted a State Significant Infrastructure (SSI) Application for the F6 Extension Stage 1 project. SSI are developments that have a wider significance and impact beyond the local area due to their size, economic value or potential impacts.
State Significant Infrastructure assessment process:
- An application and supporting documentation is received by the Department.
- The Department prepares the Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs), which outlines issues the Proponent needs to address.
- The Proponent prepares and lodges an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to address the SEARs.
- The Department publicly exhibits the EIS and consults with local councils, government agencies, other key stakeholders and the community.
- The Department publishes submissions and asks the Proponent to address any concerns or issues raised by the community, council and government agencies.
- The Proponent prepares a formal Response to Submissions (RtS) report, which the Department makes publicly available.
- The Department assesses the merits of the project, including consideration of the EIS, all submissions and community feedback, and the RtS, and makes a recommendation to the Minister for Planning for determination.
- The Department then notifies the Proponent and relevant government agencies and councils, on the outcome and publishes a Notice of Decision on our website which outlines the matters taken into consideration in making the decision and reasons for the decision.
