Municipal Class Environmental Assessment
Part B - Municipal Road Projects

In fulfilment of the requirements of the EA Act, this section provides a broad description of the following with respect to municipal road projects:

  • the projects, purpose and alternatives.
  • the environment, typical effects and potential mitigating measures.
  • screening criteria.

Section B.2 has been taken, for the most part, directly from the 1993 Class EA for Municipal Road Projects. While it focuses on road projects, the basic principles of the approach can also be applied to other projects included in the road schedules (see Appendix 1), for example, other linear paved facilities (see Glossary). Part B should be reviewed in conjunction with the project schedules in Appendix 1; typical mitigation measures for potential effects in Appendix 2; and, screening criteria in Appendix 3.

The Municipal Class EA process, including consultation and documentation, is provided in Part A of this document.
