The Singleton community is invited to learn more about the Glendell Continued Operations Project and the planning process at an information session on Monday 3 February 2020.
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is holding a community meeting to explain the next steps in the assessment process and hear community views on the proposal.
The proponent proposes to extract an additional 135 million tonnes of coal from its Glendell Coal Mine and extend mining operations until 2044.
Director of Resource Assessments, Matthew Sprott, said the meeting was an opportunity for everyone to learn more about the assessment process and what happens next.
“We are aware there is community concerns about this proposal, so we want to meet with locals face-to-face and provide clarity on the planning process,” Mr Sprott said.
“Community input is essential to help us make a thorough and rigorous assessment and ensure potential impacts are fully considered.
“The applicant will need to address all concerns raised by the community in its Response to Submissions Report before the Department undertakes a rigorous, merit-based assessment of the proposal.”
The information session will be held between 6.30pm and 8.00pm at the Singleton Diggers Club on York Street, Singleton.
Public submissions will be accepted for the proposal until Friday 14 February 2020.
