Understorey: EPA Part 1: Ready for Change

Wednesday 30th November / posted by Elizabeth PO’ Adrian Glamorgan

Controversial recommendations by the state Environmental Protection Authority relating to a number of projects such as James Price Point, Roe 8 and uranium, have led many Western Australian conservationists to argue that the EPA’s distance from government ought to be greater. In the next two weeks Understorey brings its exclusive interview with the chair of the EPA, environmental scientist Dr Tom Hatton.

In this first part, Dr Hatton describes the challenges for the board, and constraints on its operations; why the EPA has been simplifying numerous processes; its attitude to offsetting one lot of bush against another; how it’s managing conflicts of interest; and how it works with many project proponents for better environmental outcomes; and why it’s taking new strategic approaches.
