Rocky Hill Coal Mine Amended EIS Proposal

Ongoing consultation

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment's exhibitions have now closed :

  • the amended Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Rocky Hill Coal Mine;
  • a proposal to modify the Development Consent for the Stratford Mine;

As a State-Significant development, the NSW Government is the consent authority, not MidCoast Council.

MidCoast Council made a submission on both proposals, along with many other stakeholders, residents and groups. 

To view the submission that will be made by MidCoast Council to DPE this week please click on the documents below:

What happens now?

There is a strict State Significant Development Process that is followed by the NSW DPE.

What's this all about?

To help you understand the Rocky Hill and Stratford proposals, please refer to the factsheet below.

For those of you that didn't attend the community meeting held in Gloucester by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE), there is also a Q&A Factsheet outlining the questions asked at the meeting.
