State Environmental Planning Policy Amendment (Gas Exploration and Mining) 2014 - Gas Exploration

We are inviting feedback on proposed changes to planning rules relating to gas exploration activity - an initiative under the Gas Plan.
Under the Gas Plan, the assessment of all gas exploration activity would move to the Office of Coal Seam Gas within the Division of Resources and Energy, which already has expertise in gas exploration assessment.
The changes are are a result of a recommendation by the NSW Chief Scientist following a review of CSG activities in NSW.
