Part 6 Clause 6.6
6.6   Salinity
(1)  The objective of this clause is to provide for the appropriate management of land that is subject to salinity and the minimisation and mitigation of adverse impacts from development that contributes to salinity.
(2)  This clause applies to land identified as “Dryland Salinity” on the Natural Resources Land Map.
(3)  Before determining a development application for development on land to which this clause applies, the consent authority must consider the following—
(a)  whether the development is likely to have any adverse impact on salinity processes on the land,
(b)  whether salinity is likely to have an impact on the development,
(c)  any appropriate measures proposed to avoid, minimise or mitigate the impacts of the development.
(4)  Development consent must not be granted to development on land to which this clause applies unless the consent authority is satisfied that—
(a)  the development is designed, sited and will be managed to avoid any significant adverse environmental impact, or
(b)  if that impact cannot be reasonably avoided—the development is designed, sited and will be managed to minimise that impact, or
(c)  if that impact cannot be minimised—the development will be managed to mitigate that impact.
