Environment planning and approvals
The Narromine to Narrabri project’s Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was on public display from Tuesday 8 December 2020 to Sunday 7 February 2021.
The EIS outlines potential project impacts for consideration by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE). It also captures information gathered from consultation with landowners and other stakeholders and show how this was considered in determining the final rail corridor.
All submissions will be provided to ARTC and published online. The EIS, all submissions and ARTC’s Response to Submissions Report will then be reviewed by NSW and Federal Governments.
The NSW Minister for Planning and Public Spaces will make the final decision on whether the project is approved for construction.
To view the EIS, visit the DPIE website.
