30 day Comment Period on Grassy Point LNG proposal now open

The first comment period of what will be a lengthy consultation period, opened yesterday for the proposed LNG terminal project at Grassy Point for Australia's Woodside Energy, with residents of the North Coast having until April 4th to submit their comments and observations on the proposal.

As we outlined in February, Woodside is hosting an Open House and Information session at the North Coast Convention Centre on March 10th, allowing North Coast residents their first opportunity to review the proposal.

The main purpose of this first comment period is as part of the process that Woodside needs to have in place as they seek out their environmental assessment certificate, a first step towards the large assessment period.

The thirty days that have been set aside for comments are to ensure that residents can share information on whether potential effects ranging from environmental, economic, social, heritage and health that might result from the proposed project are identified for consideration as part of the assessment process.

Background on the 30 day comment period can be found here with information on how to submit your comments found on that information sheet.

One method is through the online form process, which you can access here.

Woodside Energy's Draft Application Information notes can be found here.

The CEAA/EAO project page can be reviewed here, it features the listings of documents and correspondences related to the project's initial process.
