The NSW Department of Planning, Industry & Environment has now finalised its whole-of-government assessment for the Dendrobium Extension Project 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).

Commissioners Steve O’Connor (Panel Chair) and John Hann have been appointed to determine this SSD application. They will host the Electronic Public Hearing from Wednesday 2 December to Friday 4 December 2020, commencing at 10am AEDT daily, to hear directly from community members. (Please note: The Commission has also tentatively set aside Monday 7 December and Tuesday 8 December to extend the public hearing should it be necessary.)
