NSW Department of Planning and Environment

The planning process

The Hunters Hill Remediation project is classified as a Major Project under the former Part 3A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (EP&A Act).

The planning process for major projects is as follows:

  • the department issues environmental assessment requirements
  • preparation of an environmental assessment by the proponent
  • public exhibition and opportunity for comment on the proposal by the community
  • response by the proponent to the submissions made during exhibition
  • assessment of the proposal by the department
  • final determination.
