Eight week consultation period closes 23 November.
|Date:||Tuesday, 29 September 2015|
The Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP) is seeking feedback on the draft Guidelines for Mining Proposals in Western Australia that was recently released on the department’s website.
The guidelines are part of the Reforming Environmental Regulation (RER) strategy that is introducing risk and outcome-based framework for environmental regulation.
Executive Director Environment Dr Phil Gorey said the eight week consultation period on the draft guidelines will incorporate a stakeholder briefing session on Mining Proposal reform and other RER strategy initiatives.
“The briefing session will give stakeholders the opportunity to hear from the environmental officers who developed the guidelines, ask questions and provide direct feedback,” Dr Gorey said.
“The briefing session will also cover low impact notifications, the development of online systems and other new initiatives at DMP.”
The session is being held on Wednesday 4 November at City West Reception.
The stakeholder briefing session is a free event but attendees must register as space is limited. Please register via the eventbrite website or visit the DMP events page for more information.
A regional briefing session will also be held in Kalgoorlie in November. Further details will be provided soon.
The consultation period for the draft Guidelines for Mining Proposals in Western Australia runs until Monday 23 November. Feedback can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
