How to make a Submission?

What is a  submission?

A submission is written comments/observations on a permit application and should relate to the permit application itself.

How can I make a submission?

A submission may be made in writing either by posting/faxing it to the offices of the Agency.

Who can make a submission?

Anyone (including the applicant) can make a submission on a permit application to the Agency.

When can I make a submission?

Submissions on a permit application can be made: 

  • Once the application has been received by the Agency and
  • Before the Board of the Agency makes a Proposed Decision.

It is important to lodge your submission as early as possible as late submissions cannot be considered. All submissions received by the Agency are acknowledged in writing.

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

Anyone who makes a valid submission is issued with a copy of the Proposed and Final Decisions.
