The Government has introduced a short-term consenting process to fast-track projects that can promote employment, while promoting sustainable management, to support recovery from the economic and social impacts of COVID-19.
The COVID-19 Recovery (Fast-track Consenting) Act lists 17 projects. Other projects will follow if referred by the Minister for the Environment.
Applications for fast-track projects must meet information requirements set out in the Act.
There are 17 projects listed in the Act that may be considered by expert consenting panels.
