When a project is being evaluated and the bilateral agreement is no longer applicable (e.g. B if the action in question is withdrawn from the group covered by the bilateral action), either cancelled or suspended, the draft law provides for a transition process. When does the bilateral agreement begin? The bilateral agreement is in force on 1 January 2015. How can my application for a clearing authorisation under the bilateral agreement be assessed? If an application for permission is required, the developer may carry out an assessment of MNES, coordinated with the permit application procedure, which leads the Minister of Urban Planning to issue an assessment of the MNES to inform the authorization decision under the EPBC law, while making a decision on the building permit. The possibility of a DWER compensation claim being considered under the bilateral agreement depends on the alignment date of the return to the Commonwealth and the claim for compensation with DER. The VA is still negotiating a bilateral authorization agreement with the Commonwealth. A draft bilateral authorisation agreement will be made available to the public for opinion before the bilateral authorisation agreement is finalised. Does the bilateral agreement apply to compensation claims examined before the start of the agreement? If this procedure is confirmed as an appropriate process under the bilateral procedure, the process will be managed by the Environmental Protection Agency (CEPOL), in consultation with this division. The bilateral environmental assessment agreement under section 45 of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Cth) was signed in October 2014 by the Commonwealth Government and the Victorian Government with an effective date of 31 December 2014. Streamlined confederation environmental assessments and approvals came closer with the introduction of amendments to the Environmental Protection and Conservation Act in the Federal Parliament in 1999 and the publication of new draft bilateral licensing agreements for New South Wales and Queensland. The proponent must assess the MNES resulting from the controlled measure (proposal) before the Minister of Planning prepares the final assessment and presents it to the Commonwealth Minister. The evaluation of these issues by the developer is carried out in conjunction with the assessment necessary to inform the building permit application. The intention is that the Commonwealth`s authorisation decision on the MNES under the EPBC Act will be completed prior to the decision on the building permit, in order to support better coordinated and safe decision-making.
Planning rules and instruments are being considered for the bilateral authorization agreement The Advisory Committee will review the proponent`s assessment of the MNES, in addition to the proposed amendment to a planning plan. Public submissions are invited to these two reflections. In preparing its report, the Advisory Committee will be required to consider issues relating to Victorian planning considerations as well as the separate requirements of the MNES in the bilateral agreement. The report will then be made available to the Commonwealth Minister to inform decision-making under the EPBC Act. Transitional provisions applicable to projects where the bilateral authorisation agreement no longer applies to them If an SEA is necessary due to the potential for a significant environmental impact and the project is also a controlled measure, the SEA process shall include the assessment of the MNES. defined in the EES scoping requirements. . . .
