Review of Environmental Factors reports

A Review of Environmental Factors (REF) is an assessment used to determine the impacts of an activity undertaken by a public authority. It examines the potential impacts of the activity on the environment and aims to minimise those impacts.

TAFE NSW prepares REF assessments in accordance with Part 5 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act (1979).

Environmental Planning Regulations require environmental assessment documentation to be publicly available for projects that:

  • Have a Capital Investment Value greater than $5 million.
  • Require certain permits, including permits from the Department of Primary Industries (Fisheries), Heritage NSW, National Parks and Wildlife Service and/or Environmental Protection Authority.
  • Are considered in the community interest.
