NSW Government projects allowed to bypass planning system quagmire

October 10, 2019

The NSW Government needs to explain why it has repeatedly fast-tracked its own large and controversial projects through the state planning system, bypassing the Independent Planning Commission, while expecting other major projects to endure a lengthy, uncertain and costly assessment process that is costing jobs and investment in NSW.

Industry

Almost everyone is connected to mining in some way, whether you live and work in a mining region, use government services supported by mining royalties, or through your shares and superannuation fund. With a history spanning over 200 years, mining has contributed a great deal to NSW, the original mining state.
 
The minerals mined in NSW, from coal to gold, copper and industrial minerals, not only fulfil our energy needs and provided materials for daily life, but have also made an immense economic contribution to our mining regions, our cities and our state and national economies along the way. 
 
NSW mining is an important source of employment across the state, supporting small and medium-sized business in regional areas. The money returned to the NSW Government in the form of royalties helps provide essential services and contracts with local businesses generate economic stimulus that spreads throughout the state. And as the state’s top merchandise export, coal and metallic minerals also provide a leading source of export revenue.
