Environmental Planning

Specialist environmental consultants, AECOM Australia Pty Ltd (AECOM) were engaged by Defence to undertake the environmental assessment for Talisman Saber 2017 (TS17). The process of environmental planning and assessment is conducted in order to comply with Defence's legislative obligations under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and resulted in the preparation of a suite of documents.

The principal document is the Public Environment Report (PER) and this is supported by an additional assessment of potential impacts to non-Defence training areas and a summary report that responds to submissions made during the public exhibition of the PER. The environmental documentation can be downloaded using the following links or alternatively from AECOM's TS17 website.
