The following notice is published pursuant to Section 95B(2) of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).

La Trobe University proposes to develop Stage 3 of a sports and research precinct at La Trobe University Bundoora Campus, Victoria. The project will be established around existing Stages 1 and 2 of the sports precinct. Construction is expected to commence between July and September 2021.

The proposed action is a controlled action under the EPBC Act and is being assessed by preliminary documentation. The controlling provisions are listed threatened species and communities (sections 18 and 18A of the EPBC Act). The proposed action could result in a significant impact on Matted Flax-lily (Dianella amoena).
