1. Statutory basis

The Coordinator-General has declared the Aquis Resort at the Great Barrier Reef project to  be a ‘coordinated project for which an environmental impact statement (EIS) is required’  under section 26(1)(a) of the State Development and Public Works Organisation Act 1971  (SDPWO Act). This declaration initiates the statutory environmental impact assessment  procedure of Part 4 of the SDPWO Act, which requires a proponent to prepare an EIS for the

project.

These terms of reference (TOR) set out the matters the proponent must address in an EIS  for the project and are approved by the Coordinator-General under section 30 of the SDPWO  Act.

The casino licence will be determined by the state government under the advice of the  Department of Justice and Attorney-General and is not part of the Coordinator-General’s  assessment process.
