The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) has approved the Powering Sydney’s Future project on 14 May 2020. The project which secures the electricity supply for 800,000 people working and living in Sydney’s CBD and surrounding suburbs.
This follows the public exhibition and submission of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) from 11 October to 22 November 2019.
The studies that supported the EIS were prepared by independent experts and included assessments of potential impacts on the environment, biodiversity, heritage, air quality, amenity, traffic and transport in your community.
We considered all submissions from the community and stakeholders to the EIS and prepared a Submissions Report in response to questions and issues raised. You can view this report, the EIS, DPIE’s Assessment Report, and DPIE’s Conditions of Approval on the DPIE Major Projects web page and in our Document Library.
