Public environmental review for State Barrier Fence extension now open

Issued Tuesday, Dec 19, 2017

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) is proposing to extend the existing State Barrier Fence from its current termination point 25 kilometres east of Ravensthorpe, north to Salmon Gums and ending east of Esperance near Cape Arid National Park in WA. 

An Environmental Review Document (ERD) has been prepared by DPIRD and released for public review. The ERD describes the proposal, and examines the likely environmental effects and the proposed environmental management procedures associated with the proposed development.

Industry and members of the public are invited to send submissions in to the review for consideration. Public submissions are to be received by the Environmental Protection Authority by 29 January 2018.
