Licences and approvals

Featured works approvals


EPA regularly receives and assesses applications to issue works approvals or licences. Works approval applications and some types of licence applications are open to public comment for a period of 21 days immediately after they have been lodged. The comment period starts when an application is advertised. This occurs in the Herald Sun (and in some cases in a local newspaper) and on EPA’s website.

EPA makes publicly available on its website all information – unless marked as commercial-in-confidence – related to an application.

Interested people may submit comments in writing to EPA on applications during the advertised public comment period. Public comments received will usually be made available on the website.

Where an application is considered to have high community interest, or is subject to an appeal, EPA will maintain information on the website after the public comment period has closed.

Information about the following applications is currently available.
