Official Caution issued to Tarrawonga Coal Pty Ltd (MP11_0047) Narrabri Shire LGA

On 19 August 2022, the department issued an Official Caution to Tarrawonga Coal Pty Ltd (TCPL) for failure carry out the project generally in accordance with the Environmental Assessment. On 1 March 2022, a mulching contractor carrying out planned 2022 clearing activities at Tarrawonga Coal Mine was found to have cleared vegetation beyond the approved disturbance boundary and Mining Lease 1693 boundary, and encroached on Coal Lease 368 which is not held by TCPL. The department expects all proponents to adhere to the limits of their development consent which include approved disturbance limits. TCPL have since updated their Biodiversity Management Plan and Land Disturbance Protocols to include more stringent boundary marking protocols.
