Planning and Approval Process

The NSW planning approvals process for projects such as Wallarah 2 Coal Project provides ongoing opportunities for community engagement throughout an exhaustive review and assessment process. The Project received development consent from the Planning Assessment Commission in January 2018

The planning and approval process had a number of major formal steps, in relation to the original Development Application (DA) [left hand side of table]  and an Amendment to the DA [right hand side] that resolved a land access constraint.    Following approval, the project will now have further steps in relation to detailed design and feasibility, tendering and construction phases before operations can commence.
