As part of the environmental approvals process for the program, an environmental report relating to the Torbanlea manufacturing facility was made available for public comment from Monday 13 March to Monday 27 March 2023.

The Draft Preliminary Documentation (the report) presented information about flora and fauna assessments on the site and key findings. The key findings of the report are as follows:

  • ecological values present within the site include regulated vegetation, waterway for barrier works and wildlife habitat mapped areas
  • no conservation significant species were identified during the field investigations.

The report is required for assessment under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (Commonwealth) (EPBC Act) by the Australian Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW).
