A Draft Basic Assessment Report (dBAR) will be compiled which will comprehensively describe the activities and impacts that the project may have on the receiving environment, including specialist reports and details from the PPP process. The dBAR and Environmental Management Programme (EMPr) will be published for a 30 day public comment period.
