Prepare a Statement of Environmental Effects (SOEE)

A Statement of Environmental Effects (SOEE) is a report describing a proposed development and outlining the likely impacts and the proposed measures that will mitigate these impacts. The SOEE includes written information about the proposal that cannot be readily shown on the plans.

When is SOEE Required?

All development applications require a SOEE. Only a very brief SOEE is required for proposals that are likely to have little impact. Sometimes, this can be done as notations on the plans, for example, minor residential building work not relating to a heritage item.
