We advise on the interplay between Commonwealth and State environmental legislation and sector specific legislation regulating environmental impacts. For more information about our experience with sector specific environmental regulation please see Resources Regulation.
If you are seeking approvals for a project that may have a significant impact on the environment or may face local opposition, we can assist your environmental team to draft referral documentation to maximise your likelihood of success in any legal challenges to your approval. We can also work with your in-house team or other consultants to manage risks around community and stakeholder engagement on a longer term basis.
We also advise on obtaining, scoping and complying with other environmental approvals, including native vegetation clearing permits, works approvals and operating licences, dangerous goods permits and managing annual compliance reporting obligations.
We can assist you to interpret your environmental obligations to ensure compliance and engage with regulators if issues arise.
