Hume Coal has taken the next step in the NSW Planning Process for a State Significant Development. The company has lodged its Response to Submissions report with the NSW Government’s Department of Planning and Environment.
Hume Coal project director Greig Duncan said the document was a culmination of supplementary modelling and reports which addressed the matters raised by the community, regulators and government agencies during the exhibition of the Environmental Impact Statement.
“The work undertaken over the past 12 months further reinforces the low risk and low impact design of the proposed underground coal mine,” Mr Duncan said.
The State Government’s independent planning process underpins successful development in NSW and Mr Duncan emphasised the company’s gratitude to all those who took the time to lodge a submission during the exhibition of the EIS.
