EES scoping requirements now available

Published: 26 June 2018

In May this year, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning released the draft scoping requirements for the North East Link’s Environment Effects Statement (EES) on behalf of the Minister for Planning. Public submissions were open for 15 business days – from May 22 until June 12, 2018.

The department has now released the scoping requirements. This sets out everything to be investigated as part of the project's EES process, which is the most rigorous and transparent planning process available in Victoria.
