On 14 June 2019, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to Centennial Northern Coal Services Pty Limited for failing to comply with noise limit criteria during noise monitoring on 25 June 2018 at multiple locations near Newstan Colliery (Northern Coal Logistics Project).
Newstan Colliery has cooperated with the Department throughout the investigation and has since taken action to locate and mitigate the potential cause/s of elevated noise levels on site. Noise limits are put in place to protect the amenity of surrounding neighbours. The Department will continue to monitor compliance with the conditions of consent.
