MidCoast Council, along with the NSW Department of Planning will be hosting community meetings in Gloucester for anyone who is interested in learning more about the proposed Rocky Hill Mine Project.
The original development application for the mine has undergone significant changes and there is a lot of information to review in the new Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) which is currently on exhibition for the community.
To help community members make informed submissions there are two opportunities to meet with representatives from the NSW Department of Planning and MidCoast Council.
Anyone can drop in and have a chat on Tuesday, September 6 from 12pm to 3pm at Council Chambers or attend a presentation followed by a question and answer session by the NSW Department of Planning from 5:15pm to 7pm at the Senior Citizen Centre, Hume Street. Gloucester.
The revised documentation can be viewed at:
- Rocky Hill Coal Project: http://www.majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/index.pl?action=view_job&job_id=5156
- Modification to Stratford Extension Project: http://majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/index.pl?action=view_job&job_id=7897
- Via USB (issued by Department of Planning) with all of the information from the customer service centre at the Gloucester office of MidCoast Council
- The Rocky Hill Mine Project Information Centre at 33 Church Street run by Gloucester Resources Ltd., open Wednesdays from 1pm to 6pm and Thursdays from 8am to 1pm
MidCoast Council are urging all stakeholders and members of the community to thoroughly examine the issues and provide a submission to the NSW Department of Planning by 14 October.
MidCoast Council will lodge a submission in response to the amended EIS. The submission prepared by council staff will be considered by the Administrator Mr John Turner at an extraordinary council meeting in October.
