NSW Department of Planning and Environment

On 26 May 2022, the Department issued an Official Caution to Hunter Valley Energy Coal Pty Ltd (HVEC) for failure to implement the approved Noise Management Plan at the Mt Arthur Coal mine following alarms from their real-time noise management system on 18 October 2021. Noise Management Plans identify measures to mitigate the impact of a development on the local acoustic environment, and proper implementation of Noise Management Plans protects the amenity of the surrounding community. The department will continue to monitor the implementation of Management Plans.
