1         &n= bsp;            = ;            &n= bsp;         Introduction

Leighton Contractors (Asia) Limited (LCAL) has appointed ERM= -Hong Kong, Limited (ERM) as the Environmental Team (ET) to implement the Environmental Monitoring and Audit (EM&A) programme for the Permanent Aviation Fuel Facility (the Project) during construction works. 

The construction works for PAFF com= menced in November 2005 based upon the previous EIA (EIAO Register Number AEIAR-062-2002) conducted and the Environmental Permit EP-139/2002 granted = on the 28th August 2002.  Due to minor changes to the detailed layout of the site and the site boundary, application for Variation to the Environmental Permit (VEP) (VEP-133/2004) was submitted to the Director of Environmental Protection (D= EP) for approval.  The variation t= o the EP (EP-139/2002/A) was granted by EPD in February 2004.

However, the decision by EPD to gra= nt the above Environmental Permit was subject to a Judicial Review.  The Judicial Review sided in the f= avour of the DEP, as did the subsequent Judgement from the Court of Appeal from t= he High Court for Judicial Review in March 2005.  However, the DEP’s decision = to grant the EP was quashed by the Judgement of the Court of Final Appeal of J= uly 2006.

The construction works were stopped following the Judgement of the Court of Final Appeal of July 2006.  As such, in order to continue with= the construction of the project, the project went through the statutory procedu= res under the EIAO again with a new design in order to obtain an environmental permit.  The revised EIA was submitted in 2007 and the environmental permit (EP-262/2007) was granted in= May 2007.

The construction works and EM&A requirements resumed on 9th July 2007 following the latest requirements of the EP-262/2007 and EM&A Manual.  Details regarding the EM&A requirements and changes should refer to the updated EM&A Manual.  For the marine works, all piling activities were completed before the previous suspension of construction wo= rks in 2006.
