Narrabri Gas Project
Independent Planning Commission (IPC) Public Hearing
Monday – Friday 20 – 24 July 2020 from 9.30am
It’s more important than ever for the people of NSW to register to speak at this hearing to demonstrate the community’s rejection of this ‘state significant’ project and the expansion of the coal seam gas industry in our state.
To register to speak at this Electronic Public Hearing, you must lodge by July 10 an expression of interest form which will be uploaded to the Independent Planning Commission’s website.
1. This is the final stage of the approval process.
2. A public hearing extinguishes the right of the proponent or objector to challenge the merits of the IPC’s decision in the Land and Environment Court.
3. Covid 19 restrictions have limited the planned activities for this event.
Write a Submission
Write and lodge a submission objecting to the Narrabri Gas Project by 31 July.
A record 22,000 objections to this project were lodged with the NSW government in 2017. Many were the same form letter. Submissions to the IPC must be ‘unique’ to be counted, so you are encouraged to write an individual submission.
Submission don’t have to be long or cover all your objections and concerns about the project. You can also write one for a group and help friends and family with theirs – the more the better but not the same.
More information and a submission guide available soon but in the mean time check out our website.
