Delivering the Implementation Plan requires a considered approach across a number of State Government agencies, allowing for adjustments, if required to better meet the needs of the Government, stakeholders and the community.
Action status and updates will be reported quarterly.
Proponents considering hydraulic fracturing on onshore petroleum titles where the hydraulic fracturing moratorium has been lifted are able to self-refer to the EPA, however assessment will be undertaken in parallel with the implementation of the remaining Actions.
Proponents will not be permitted to commence hydraulic fracturing exploration until the WA Code of Practice has been developed, and hydraulic fracturing production will not be approved until Traditional Owner and private landowner consent requirements have been implemented.
