Environmental Impact Statement for Raising Clarrie Hall Dam

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


About

Council consultants Eco Logical Australia have begun work to prepare the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed raising of Clarrie Hall Dam.

The EIS is expected to be completed by February 2021 and will be placed on exhibition for public comment around March 2021.

The EIS must be exhibited for a minimum of 28 days.

During that period, the community and other stakeholders are invited to make submissions on the EIS. These submissions must be considered by the Consultant and a formal Response to Submissions prepared.

Given that this project has been accepted as a State Significant Infrastructure (SSI) project, the Department of Planning Industry and Environment (DPIE) advertises the exhibition period in both a statewide and local newspaper and places electronic copies of the document on its Major Projects Website.

Submissions on the document will be able to be made in one of four ways:

  • Online
    • via the relevant application form on the Dept PIE’s Major Projects website
    • via this Your Say Tweed site
  • In writing:
    • to the department
    • to Tweed Shire Council.

To assist the community and stakeholders to make submissions on this EIS for this project, Council and its Consultant were to hold up to two public meetings to help unpack the document. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, public meetings may no longer be possible. Council and its Consultant are considering alternate ways of engaging the community. The dates of these future engagements - whether by virtual meetings or other means - will be advertised on this site, plus in the Tweed Link publication printed in the Tweed Valley Weekly and Gold Coast Bulletin every week.

If you are interested in this project and want to review the EIS and possibly make a submission on its content, please register to Stay Informed by clicking the tab at the top right-hand of this page. This will enable Council to email you direct when the EIS goes on public exhibition and when the public meeting / s are scheduled.

A preliminary study was done some years ago but due to the changes in the energy market and the capacity of the grid to take any electricity generated, the feasibility study needs to be revised. We have asked NSW Public Works Advisory to review the feasibility of hydro generation at Clarrie Hall Dam. - The Project Team.
