The proponent - Martindale Hall Partnership - has proposed the development of a wellness retreat and five-star resort in their initial proposal. The Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources is leading the process for assessing this proposal under the Guidelines for Assessment of Unsolicited Proposals.
