Improving mining regulation in NSW

The NSW Government is taking a whole-of-government approach to apply stringent requirements for mining applications to give communities better information about projects and reduce costly duplication.

The improvements are part of the NSW Government’s wider plan to improve mining regulation and strengthen information available for communities near mining projects.

Community and industry consultation is happening in two stages. Stage one consultation concluded on 13 July. All submissions provided for stage one are currently under consideration. The second stage of consultation will involve exhibiting the remaining Integrated Mining Policy documents and will occur in coming months.
