Outcomes of consultation on the draft Environment Protection Bill and Regulations

The draft Environment Protection Bill and Regulations were available for public review between 4 October and 3 December 2018. All released documents can be found on the consultation webpage.

Consultation on the draft legislation was managed through a third party (JTA Australia) with a series of interviews, round table discussions and written submissions. JTA Australia developed a consultation report PDF (595.2 KB) to summarise stakeholders views on the draft legislation. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources has prepare the Response to submission on draft environment protection legislation for the Northern Territory PDF (231.5 KB).

Thirty five organisations participated in interviews and 33 written submissions were received. In addition, 178 people submitted a pro-forma submission arranged PDF (78.1 KB) by the Environment Centre of the Northern Territory.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources thanks all those stakeholders who have contributed their time and effort in providing written and verbal submissions. The submissions have gone towards further improving proposed reforms to the environmental regulatory system and will assist to deliver sustainable development in the Northern Territory.

The department does not intend to release a revised draft Bill for further consultation. Stakeholders will be informed of the changes through updates on the Environmental Regulatory Reform latest news webpage. Stakeholders will be able to make submissions on the revised draft Bill through the Northern Territory Parliament’s Policy Scrutiny Committee process once it has been introduced into the Legislative Assembly in 2019.
