Engagement Area

Environmental Surveys

While we gain invaluable knowledge from consulting with local communities, we will be conducting studies and surveys to understand the locale and surrounding areas. Some of these will require desktop research while others will require surveys on the areas being considered.

The findings from these surveys will inform the development of the proposed project and will be published in our Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR) as part of the NISA planning application.
