Public consultation

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) consults with the public on a range of matters that concern the Marine Park, including permit applications and proposed developments.

People interested in the management of the Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage Area, including proposed developments, have valuable knowledge that contributes to the assessment process.

A list of current plans, applications and assessments for public consultation are available online, along with details on the process.

All proposals for development within or partly within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park must be assessed for a permit under the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act 1975.

If the proposal is likely to have a significant impact on a Matter of National Environmental Significance (MNES) including the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and World Heritage Area, it is required to be referred under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.

Proposals open for public comment

The opportunity for the public to comment on a proposal is an important part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority environmental assessment and consultative processes. As part of these processes, interested parties are invited to contact GBRMPA for more information, or to make a written submission in relation to the proposal.
