Regulatory compliance as a means to achieve environmental sustainability at some large coastal developments in Queensland
Lavery, Hugh (2012) Regulatory compliance as a means to achieve environmental sustainability at some large coastal developments in Queensland. Queensland Environmental Practice Reporter, 17(79), pp. 240-251.
The growing public concern about the complexity, cost and uncertain efficacy of the statuary environmental impact assessment process applying to large-scale projects in Queensland is reviewed. This is based on field data gathered over the past six years sat large-scale marina developments that access major environmental reserves along the coast. An ecological design proposal to broaden the process consisted with both government aspirations and regional ecological parameters - termed Regional Landscape Strategies - would allow the existing Environmental Impact Asessment to be modified alone potentially more practicable and effective lines.
