AIE Responds to Public Submissions
The assessment of the Port Kembla Gas Terminal has moved to its next stage, with AIE’s lodgement of its Response to Submissions with the NSW Government.
The document is required to respond to all the submissions received during the public exhibition of the Project’s Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
The EIS was on public exhibition from November 14 to December 14, 2018 and a total of 23 submissions were received during this period. Of these submissions, 9 were from government agencies, 5 from interest groups, 3 from corporations and 6 from individuals. Thirteen of the submissions made comment on the project, 7 expressed support for the project and 3 raised objections to the project.
The submissions and AIE’s Response to Submissions can be viewed at www.majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au.
AIE’s Response to Submissions document will now be considered by the Government before it makes a final Project determination.
