Permit application form under the Environment Protection (Sea Dumping) Act 1981
About the permit application form
The purpose of this form is to enable the assessment of the need for, and potential environmental impacts of, a proposal to place an artificial reef at sea. On the basis of this assessment the Minister may grant or refuse to grant a permit for the proposed placement under Section 19 of the Environment Protection (Sea Dumping) Act 1981 (the Sea Dumping Act).
As part of the application, you are required to provide a long-term management plan for the proposed artificial reef. As part of this, you should determine whether you and/or your organisation have sufficient resources to carry out a reef placement project and be able to monitor the project well into the future.
