Smith Bay, Kangaroo Island - Deep Water Port Facility
7 November 2019
Following consultation on the draft EIS, which ran from 28 March to 28 May 2019, the proponent has amended the design of the in water component of the proposal and has prepared an Addendum to the EIS to reflect these changes.
The key changes contained in the Addendum are:
- replacing the solid causeway with an open fully piled jetty structure
- extending the open fully piled jetty out up to the -13.8 metres depth contour (estimated at up to 650 metres from the coast, up to an additional 250 metres further seaward than initially proposed).
All other details of the previously consulted on EIS remain the same.
The Minister for Planning consulted on the Addendum to the EIS from 7 November to 20 December 2019, seeking submissions on the proposed changes to the design of the in-water elements of the proposal.
All submissions received during this period have now been provided to the proponent (KIPT) and are attached below. KIPT will now respond to any additional matters raised as a result of the proposed changes detailed in its Addendum, in its consolidated Response Document. This Response Document will also be made publically available.
