Implementation of NSW Strategic Regional Land Use Plans

October 03, 2013

The details of the implementation of the NSW Government’s Strategic Regional Land Use Plans announced today will impose significant additional requirements and conditions on many mining project proposals in NSW.

While the NSW mining industry has accepted the need for Strategic Regional Land Use Plans, we remain concerned about the impact of adding more bureaucratic duplication and delays onto an already rigorous and lengthy planning assessment process.

With the Planning System Review still ongoing after two and a half years, and many other aspects of the assessment process uncertain, there remains a lot more work to do to return much needed confidence for investors in the NSW mining sector.

However, now the long-awaited gateway process is in place at least there is some certainty for the industry around this aspect of the assessment process.
