Environmental Impact Statement Process

The Spur Hill Underground Coking Coal Project is classified as State Significant Development, meaning that the NSW Minister for Planning, or the Planning Assessment Commission (under delegation) will assess the Project and make a determination.

SHM requested Environmental Assessment Requirements (EARs) from the NSW Department of Planning & Environment to inform the requirements for the Environmental Impact Statement. This request includes an overview of the Project and identifies key potential issues for further assessment. EARs were issued by the Department in July 2014.
