Environmental Offsets

Environmental offsets compensate for the adverse impacts of development on matters of national environmental significance, as identified under the Australian Government's Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act).

Where offset sites fall on land managed by TAMS, the Directorate is responsible for implementing the relevant offset management plan on behalf of the ACT Government. This includes environmental offsets linked to the Molonglo Valley and Lawson developments, as well as future developments within Gungahlin.

There are currently over 2000 hectares supporting matters of national environmental significance that TAMS is actively managing or assisting to establish as environmental offsets.

These environmental offsets support a diverse range of threatened species and communities. This includes the golden sun moth, superb parrot and striped legless lizard, as well as the natural temperate grassland and box gum woodland ecological communities.
