The Independent Planning Commission (IPC) has announced the dates of the public hearing regarding the Hume Coal and Berrima Rail projects. The public hearing will be held on the 26 and 27 February 2019 at the Moss Vale Services Club.

Project Director Greig Duncan said that Hume Coal is looking forward to the IPC public hearings which will give the local community and business owners a final opportunity to demonstrate their support for the Hume coal project.

“We have worked for years, undertaking countless scientific studies and technical research to ensure our underground mine design is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable."

“This is the lowest impact underground coal mine design ever proposed in NSW and we look forward to having a fair and independent assessment of the project by the IPC.”

Duncan emphasised the importance for all community members to have their say on the Hume coal project at the public hearings.

“This is the last chance for the 500 job seekers and over 40 business owners to stand up and let the IPC know how much this community wants and needs this injection of economic and employment opportunities in our local community.”
