CIS for reference


The CIS looks at each in regard to

  • Key risks for objective, in terms of clear risks that the project poses to the achievement of the evaluation objective. Note that other risks may need to be identified and considered.
  • Priorities for studies to characterise existing environment, which are needed to underpin predictive impact assessments, having regard to the level of risk.Design and mitigation responses to risks, in terms of design or other available measures that could be incorporated in the project description to avoid or minimise impacts or otherwise substantially reduce risk.
  • Assessment of likely impacts, in terms of predictive studies or estimates of impacts that are reasonably likely and then evaluation of their significance, having regard to their likelihood and sources of uncertainty.
  • Approach to performance management, in terms of proposed measures to manage risks to required outcomes.


3.1 Draft evaluation objectives

These Scoping Directions provide a set of draft “evaluation objectives” derived from key applicable law criteria in order to structure and focus the assessment of impacts that may result from the project.


1. Transport connectivity - Whether the impacts of the project on the traffic performance of roads connecting to the project, and the surrounding road network, as well as on connectivity for public transport, cycling and pedestrians, have been appropriately addressed.


2. Land use, dwellings and infrastructure - Whether the impacts of the project on land use and infrastructure in its immediate environs, including on housing, recreation and community facilities, have been appropriately addressed.


3. Visual amenity - Whether the proposed Urban Design Framework in the CIS will appropriately manage visual impacts of the project on the surrounding area, including public open spaces.


4. Noise, vibration, air emissions and light spill - Whether the noise, vibration, air emission and light spill impacts of the project will be appropriately managed by proposed measures.


5. Cultural heritage - Whether the impacts of the project on cultural heritage places have been appropriately addressed.


6. Surface water and groundwater - Whether the impacts of the project on surface and ground waters have been appropriately addressed..


7. Native vegetation and biodiversity - Whether the impacts of the project on native vegetation and biodiversity have been appropriately addressed.


8. Solid Wastes -Whether the risk from disturbance and disposal of solid wastes has been appropriately addressed.


9. Environmental management framework - Whether the Environmental Management Framework in the CIS will provide an effective integrated approach to manage the environmental performance of the project.
