How to make a submission

A submission is written comments/observations on a licence application or licence review. The submission should relate to the application itself or any Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) accompanying the application.

How can I make a submission?

You can make submission in writing online or by posting/faxing it to the offices of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). If you intend to submit video footage as part of a submission, it must be in MP4 format.  Any other format will not be accepted.

Who can make a submission?

Anyone (including the applicant) can make a submission on a licence application to the EPA.

When can I make one?

Submissions on a licence application can be made:

  • Once the application has been received by the EPA and
  •  Before the Board of the EPA makes a decision on an application

It is important to lodge your submission as early as possible, as late submissions cannot be considered. All submissions we receive are acknowledged in writing.

Withdrawal of a Submission

A submission may be withdrawn in writing/email at any time prior to it being considered by the Board of the Agency.

How will I know what the EPA's decision is?

Anyone who makes a valid submission is issued with a copy/pdf of the proposed determination and a link to the final determination.

All documentation received in respect of a licence application, including any submissions, are available to view on this website.
