In response to the SAT decision last year and following discussions with the Shire of Murray and Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage, we are now preparing the Marina Village Precinct Activity Centre Plan (ACP) in accordance with the Point Grey Outline Development Plan. The ACP includes the proposed marina and surrounding development. Once the ACP has been assessed and approved we can proceed to lodging a development application for the marina, noting that all necessary Federal and State Environmental approvals are now in place for the project to proceed.
2020 Next Steps
Tian An Australia appealed the decision to the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT).
The Minister for Environment advised the EPA that PGDC had requested the Time Limit for Substantial Commencement be extended until 1 August 2022 to allow sufficient time following completion of a new section 46 inquiry.
Pursuant to section 46(1) of the EP Act, the Minister for Environment requested that the EPA inquire into and report on the matter of changing the implementation conditions relating to the Point Grey Marina proposal, in order to extend the time limit of authorisation for substantial commencement, taking into consideration any new information.
The Point Grey Development Company requested an extension to the Time Limit for Substantial Commencement so that it would align with the Commonwealth approval timeline of 28 June 2019.
An additional technical report was provided to the Commonwealth in 2014 and the proposal was approved under the EPBC Act on 28 June.
Commonwealth assessment – Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts determine development proposal falls under the Environmental Protection Biodiversity Act 1999
