Bancroft Bay (Metung) Marina Environmental Assessment and Management

The East Gippsland Shire Council engaged BMT WBM to co-ordinate and prepare a series of technical studies and develop the relevant environmental referrals and approval/consent applications for the redevelopment of the Bancroft Bay (Metung) Marina.

The East Gippsland Shire Council engaged BMT WBM to co-ordinate and prepare a series of technical studies and develop the relevant environmental referrals and approval/consent applications for the redevelopment  of the Bancroft Bay (Metung) Marina.

The proposed works involve the demolition of the existing facility and the construction of a new 161 berth marina in Bancroft Bay, Gippsland Lakes. 

BMT WBM conducted baseline and impact assessment investigations in our core discipline areas of:

  • Ecology;
  • Water quality;
  • Coastal processes; and
  • Coastal planning issues.

Specialist sub-consultants were engaged to assist the team in addressing cultural heritage requirements (including developing a Cultural Heritage Assessment).

The results of these studies were used to support a range of environmental approval applications, including a planning permit and Coastal Management Act 1995 consent.

BMT WBM also developed the necessary Environmental Management and Monitoring Plans to ensure the project satisfied the regulatory performance requirements.
