The Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Referrals Office has advised that a decision may be made within the next two to three weeks as to whether or not Kings Forest is a Controlled Action under the EPBC Act.
The proponent has returned some information in response to their request, following public submissions in May 2012 relating to the likely effects of the development on the koala population. This information will be evaluated, then either more information requested (in which case the clock will remain stopped) or a decision will be made within this timeframe.
For more information ring the referrals office at 1800 803 772.
