Change to mining policy

On 31 August 2015 Planning Minister Rob Stokes announced the State’s mining policy would be changed to provide a more balanced framework for decision making.

The change to the State’s mining policy is an achievement for the community, and an important step forward in the Government’s mining reform agenda.

The new legislation came into effect 2 September 2015.
