    Planning Assessment Commission Hearings

    The Bylong Coal Project moved into a new phase with the announcement that the Project has been referred to the NSW Planning and Assessment Commission (PAC) for review and consideration as a State Significant Development under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act). On 11 May 2017, the PAC held a public hearing of submissions from residents, the local community and other stakeholders on the Bylong Coal Project. The PAC hearing was another opportunity for stakeholders to have their views heard and considered in the final determination on the Project.

    Information on submissions and presentations from the PAC hearing is available here.
