EIS exhibition now closed, Response-to-Submissions phase begins
The proposed Western Sydney Energy and Resource Recovery Centre (WSERRC) has now completed the public exhibition phase of the state significant development planning process.
The exhibition of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) provided an opportunity for the public to review the proposal in detail including the environmental, technical and social elements of the WSERRC. This information was provided to the public through a virtual engagement room, which can be viewed here and will remain accessible into early 2021.
The public exhibition of the EIS ran for 6 weeks between October 6, 2020 to November 16, 2020. During this time, the public, agencies and local government were able to give feedback or seek more information from the WSERRC team by making a submission to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE).
The proposal received a total of 630 submissions which include public, agency and group submissions for the proposed WSERRC. All submissions are publicly available on the WSERRC Major Project page. The publishing of submissions online launches the next phase in the development application process called the ‘response-to-submissions’ (RTS).
