Responsible Mining Bill

The Green’s Responsible Mining Bill aims to empower councils to make the final decision about mining and gas development and to introduce no-go zones where mining, gas and other extractive industries will not be permitted including

  • Urban areas;
  • National Parks, Nature Reserves, State Conservation Areas and other reserves managed by the Office of Environment and Heritage;
  • State Forests and Traveling Stock Routes;
  • Productive agricultural areas; and
  • Drinking water catchments, rivers and productive ground water sources.
