Have your say
Queensland's Coordinator-General invites you to have your say on the draft terms of reference (TOR) for an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Winchester South project.
The Coordinator-General will consider all comments made on the draft TOR before finalising the TOR.
The proponent is then to prepare a draft EIS in accordance with the final TOR. Once the Coordinator-General has considered that the draft EIS is acceptable for public notification, the draft EIS will be made available for public comment.
Submissions close 5 pm on 19 July 2019.
