The NSW Department of Planning, Industry & Environment has now finalised its whole-of-government assessment for the Maxwell Underground Coal Mine Project (SSD-9526) and provided it to the Independent Planning Commission NSW for determination.

The Minister for Planning and Public Spaces has requested that the Commission conduct a public hearing into the carrying out of the Project prior to determining the state significant development (SSD) application for it. As required under COVID-19 regulations, the Commission will conduct this public hearing electronically by video conference (with an option to participate by telephone).

Two Commissioners have been appointed to determine this SSD application: Professor Mary O’Kane AC (Panel chair) and Mr John Hann. They will host the Electronic Public Hearing from 10am AEDT on Wednesday 11 November 2020 to hear directly from community members. (Please note: The Commission has tentatively set aside Friday 13 November 2020 to extend the public hearing to a second day should it be necessary).
