Noonamah Region


The proposed development represents a substantial opportunity to deliver much needed residential expansion of the Greater Darwin Region through a coherent master planned approach. The vision for the proposed residential subdivision is to: Provide a high quality residential estate, providing a range of lot sizes and typologies, with an emphasis on retaining rural character and amenity. The estate will be serviced by a local town centre encouraging cohesion and social amenity, including the provision of land for a new primary school, retail facilities, a community centre and land for new volunteer fire brigades. The development will aim to connect to the surrounding rural area, providing the opportunity to create a strong sense of community. - Development Outline

Noonamah Ridge Estate objective, clear, succinct and easily understood by the general reader. Maps (using an appropriate scale, resolution and clarity), plans, diagrams and other descriptive detail should be included. Technical jargon should be avoided or accompanied by a clear explanation so that it is readily understandable. Cross-referencing should be used to avoid unnecessary duplication of text. The level of analysis and detail in the EIS should reflect the level of significance of the potential impacts on the environment, as determined through adequate technical studies. Consideration of appropriate spatial, temporal and analytical scales should be used to clearly communicate the potential impacts to the environment. Reliability of the data and an explanation of the sampling criteria and approach should be provided where data are used to support statements, studies and claims in the EIS. All known and unknown variables, limitations or assumptions made in the EIS must be clearly stated and discussed. Information materials summarising and highlighting risks of the Project should be provided in a culturally appropriate format and language, accompanied by graphics and illustrations that assist with interpretation, where relevant.

Executive summary The executive summary must include a brief outline of the Project and each chapter of the EIS, allowing the reader to obtain a clear understanding of the proposed action, its environmental implications and management objectives.

Main text of the document The main text of the EIS should include a list of abbreviations, a glossary to define technical terms, acronyms, abbreviations, and colloquialisms. The document should consist of a series of chapters detailing the level of significance and management of the potential impacts on the environment from the proposed action. 3. Appendices The appendices must include detailed technical information, studies or investigations necessary to support the main text. These will be made publicly available and should include: a table listing how these Terms of Reference have been addressed in the EIS, cross-referenced to chapters, page numbers and/or appendices the name of, work done by and the qualifications and experience of the persons involved in preparing the EIS a table listing commitments made by the Proponent detailed technical information, studies or investigations necessary to support the main text.
