Development Plan Process
The Physical Planning Act (2003) requires a developer to make a formal submission of a general concept application to the Development Control Authority (DCA) outlining the scope, size, location and use of the proposed development. 
Schedule 3 of the Physical Planning Act (2003) requires that an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) be conducted for:
  1.     An airport, port or harbour, including a yacht marina; 
  2.    A power plant; 
  3.    A crude oil or refinery facility or a petroleum and natural gas storage and pipeline installation; 
  4.    An incinerator, sanitary landfill operation, solid waste disposal site, sludge disposal site, toxic waste disposal site or other similar site; 
  5.   A wastewater treatment, desalination or water purification plant; 
  6.   An industrial estate development project; 
  7.   An installation for the manufacture, storage or industrial use of    cement, paints, chemical products or hazardous materials; 
  8.   A drilling, quarrying, sand mining and other mining operation; 
  9.   An operation involving land reclamation, dredging and filling of ponds; and 
  10.   A hotel or resort complex. all hotel or resort developments.

Upon receipt of the application, DCA will forward the concept application to the Environment Division.  Environment Officers will conduct a preliminary site assessment in the presence of the developer or in the presence of a designated representative.  The site may only be assessed by viewing a hard copy of the general concept design to gain an in-depth understanding of the proposal and the likely environmental damage it may incur as opposed to a verbal orientation.  

Based on the Environment Division's preliminary findings, a Terms of Reference for an Environmental Impact Assessment will be drafted by the  Environment Officers detailing the types of studies to be conducted in order to address any concerns of environmental hazards.  The final report will be forwarded back to the DCA for retrieval.  

The cost of the EIA will be borne by the developer and the subsequent EIA report will be forwarded to the Environment Division via the DCA.  After a complete review of the report, the Division will either recommend approval with conditions or recommend non-approval.
