Environmental Planning and Reporting
SMK Consultants has the expertise and experience to assess the environmental impacts of a range of developments and produce environmental planning documents. We understand the legal requirements of State and Commonwealth environmental legislation, and provide expert advice on environmental approval matters. Our reports are clear and concise to enable councils and other consent authorities to assess potential environmental impacts of proposed developments.
We can provide a wide range of reports. Examples include:
Review of Environmental Factors
Environmental Impact Studies
Statement of Environmental Effects
Constraints and Opportunities Assessments
Assessments of Matters of National Significance under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999
Assessments of Significance under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016
Reports are guided by legislation and present the findings of environmental assessments, including desktop studies, thorough site assessments and expert studies (as required by the scale of the development).
Reports also contain details on stakeholder consultation, environmental safeguards, mitigation measures, alternative activities and any required approvals.
