EMAP Consulting offer a SiteREF service where we do the legwork in querying the most recently available spatial databases at the location of a chosen site and generate a report to inform a Review of Environmental Factors (REF).

The intention of this service is to provide an overview of the environmental constraints on a site, to help you determine the viability of the undertaking of an activity to be approved. It does not constitute a full REF or development approval as it does not consider the type of development proposed to be carried out on the site. This service is offered as time saving and cost-effective solution for your REF spatial component needs.

Information inclusions:

  • State Environmental Planning Policies (SEPPs) that apply to the site
  • LEP zoning, soil landscapes, BioNet vegetation communities
  • search of NSW BioNet Atlas for threatened flora and fauna species within a defined radius of the site
  • search of EPBC Protected Matters database for Matters of National Environmental Significance (MNES) within a defined radius of the site
  • basic search of AHIMS database for presence of Aboriginal sites or places within a defined radius of the site

The report is supplied in PDF format and includes maps of the site with any environmental constraints identified.

Timeframe: Guaranteed 2 business days turnaround

Pricing: $1,500 plus GST

There may be an additional cost for sites larger than 1km x 1km.

Please view the sample SiteREF below and enquire about your site. We will respond via email to request confirmation of your site and your report will be submitted within 2 business days from receipt of email confirmation and payment.
