Online community information sessions were held on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 September 2021. Key project team members were in attendance to present both projects and answer questions. RES would like to thank all the members of the community who attended.

Both projects are subject to an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Social Impact Assessment (SIA) as part of the NSW planning policy for state significant developments, which are currently being prepared. We are seeking your feedback and participation into this process over the coming months.  

The Project Presentation shared at each session as well as a summary of the sessions, including the questions and answers raised are available.
