This dataset was supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and is presented here as originally supplied. Metadata was not provided and has been compiled by the Bioregional Assessment Programme based on known details at the time of acquisition.
This dataset contains reports and appendices related to the EIS for the South Galilee Coal Project. Tables, figures and maps have been extracted from these reports to produce supplementary datasets.
The South Galilee Coal Project (SGCP) is a proposed open-cut and underground coal mining operation in the Galilee Basin in Central Queensland.
The objective of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process is to identify and assess the potential impacts associated with a particular development and develop measures to avoid or mitigate impacts identified.
This EIS document reports on the findings of the EIA process by providing information to interested bodies and persons, affected groups or persons, government agencies and referral bodies. The objectives of this EIS are to:
provide a rationale for the SGCP and describe the alternatives considered
describe the SGCP and how it will be implemented
identify and assess the potential environmental, social and economic impacts of the SGCP
demonstrate how potential impacts can be avoided, mitigated or managed, and present offsets for any residual impacts.
The Queensland Coordinator-General has declared the SGCP to be a 'significant project' for which an EIS is required. The Commonwealth Government has declared the SGCP to be a 'controlled action' requiring an EIS.
This EIS has been carried out under the State Development and Public Works Organisation Act 1971 (SDPWO Act), administered by the Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning (DSDIP).
Individual reports within this dataset were downloaded from the QLD Government Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning website.
