Director General of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet on behalf of the State of Western Australia
Grounds of Appeal:
The proposal the subject of appeal was for deployment and operation of drum lines and associated services for a three month period which concluded on 30 April 2014. In considering the appeals, the Minister for Environment noted that a new proposal, the Western Australian Shark Hazard Mitigation Drum Line Program 2014–2017, proposes to deploy and operate drum lines for a period of three years from November 2014 which was being assessed by the EPA at the level of Public Environmental Review. Given this, the Minister concluded it was unnecessary to determine appeals on the concluded proposal.
Date of Decision:
