In Response To: Public participation in regulatory controls. (Gillian Cambers.)

The public have been involved as follows:

- Lists of potentially interested and affected parties (I&APs) were compiled (some 400 in all) and information brochures were sent to them, notifying them of public meetings. Notices were also placed in the press.

- The public meetings were used to inform the public of the relevant issues and to call for issues that they felt need to be addressed.

- A scoping report was compiled (which included the issues and initial responses to them) and sent to the I&APs.

- A comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIR) has also been sent to public libraries and to key I&APs (those who are affected and those who responded with significant issues).

- The EMPRs are currently being compiled and will take into account comments from the I&APs. The final documents will be submitted to the Department of Minerals & Energy for comment and approval.
