Project approvals process

We have prepared a Submissions and Preferred Infrastructure Report (SPIR) outlining the changes made to the Narrabri to North Star two components. This details the subsequent environmental implications of delivering SP1.


It is expected DPE will conclude its project assessment and the NSW Minister for Planning will set conditions of approval under the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act mid this year.

The final step is for the Commonwealth Minister for the Environment to set further conditions under the EPBC Act. Based on this assumption project works are forecast to begin in Q4 2020.
