Action item updates
Work has commenced to determine the methodologies for undertaking the Strategic Regional Environment Baseline Assessments (SREBAs). This work includes approval of a methodology for undertaking social, cultural and economic baselines which will inform strategic social impact assessments, and recommendations on ongoing monitoring of potential impacts. The target completion date for approval of these methodologies is mid-2019.
The assessment of individual project proposals will consider what social, cultural and economic impacts may need to be managed as projects progress into the production phase, and the regulator may include these requirements as approval conditions.
