INVITATION TO COMMENT: NSW draft Strategic Regional Land Use Plans
The NSW Government released two draft Strategic Regional Land Use Plans on Tuesday 6 March 2012, along with its draft Code of Practice for Coal Seam Gas and a Draft NSW Aquifer Interference Policy. The draft land use plans relate to the Upper Hunter and New England North West regions. These plans are part of a package of strategic regional land use initiatives designed to reduce land use conflict between the mining/CSG industry and other land users.
The public is being invited to comment on the draft plans which will be on public exhibition for eight weeks until Thursday 3 May 2012.
All four documents, and an online discussion site, are at http://haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au/regionallanduse.
