2. What is environmental assessment?
Environmental Assessment (EA) is a decision-making tool used to promote sustainable development by evaluating the potential environmental effects of major developments before they proceed. This is accomplished by involving the public along with various government departments and agencies during the environmental assessment.
Environmental assessment also promotes better project planning by identifying and addressing environmental effects at the earliest stages of project development and can save proponents time and money.
3. Who reviews the environmental assessment information?
The environmental assessment information may be reviewed by any member of the general public, interest groups and government departments and agencies such as the following:
Government Department or Agency
Non-Government Organizations First Nations
4. How can the public participate during an environmental assessment?
A number of opportunities exist during an environmental assessment where members of the public can contribute. Depending on the level of assessment, public participation ranges from submitting written comments to making a presentation at a public hearing. At all public participation stages, notices will be published in newspapers, inviting the comments on the development under review at that time.
For Class 1 developments, members of the public will have an opportunity to review and submit comments on the registration document, which will be considered by the Minister for a decision. Other opportunities may exist if the Minister decides that a focus report or an environmental assessment report is required.
For Class 2 developments, members of the public will have an opportunity to review and submit comments on the registration document and the proposed terms of reference, which will be considered by the EA Branch when preparing the final terms of reference for the environmental assessment report. When the environmental assessment report is submitted, members of the public are able to review the report and submit comments, and there may be an opportunity to make a presentation if a public hearing is required.
When environmental assessment information is released to members of the public, the information can be reviewed at anyone of the following locations:
- Environmental Assessment Branch website (as it becomes available)
- One of the two public viewing locations provided by the proponent
- Nova Scotia Environment, Local Office
Comments received during the public review periods will be considered by the Minister when making a decision. Should the Minister decide that there are no adverse effects or significant environmental effects associated with the development, and the project is approved to proceed, your comments may still be incorporated into the conditions of approval, which the proponent must abide by.
All comments submitted become part of the public record and are available to all Nova Scotians upon request.
5. How is the public notified about an environmental assessment?
The proponent is required to publish a public notification when they have registered their undertaking for environmental assessment. The notice must be published in one newspaper having general circulation in the locality in which the undertaking is to be located and one newspaper having Province-wide circulation. Where there is no newspaper having general circulation in the locality in which the undertaking is to be located, the notice must be posted in the municipal building, post office or other public building in that locality. The notice must include the following information:
- the name and address of the proponent;
- the proposed location of the proposed undertaking;
- the nature of the proposed undertaking;
- the date of registration pursuant to the Act and regulations;
- the proposed commencement date and project schedule where applicable; and
- locations where registration information may be viewed by the public.
The Environmental Assessment Administrator is required to publish a public notification when a focus report, terms of reference and environmental assessment report has been released to the public and when a public hearing is scheduled. These notices must be published in the same manner as the registration of undertaking.
