NTG is reforming the NT Environmental Assessment Act – major reforms will :
promote ecologically sustainable development; strengthen guidelines around the types or projects requiring environmental assessment; provide a stronger focus on assessing the environmental impacts of both individual projects and at a regional level; provide greater transparency around decision making and the assessment process ; increase enforcement of environmental assessment requirements; harmonise the regulation of environmental activity on and off mining sites.
have your say on how the government can continue to sustainably manage our environment and the best way to put these reforms into place.
