Land and Environment Court of NSW

Mining cases - At the final hearing

The final hearing of the proceedings will take place at the date and time fixed by the Court at the first directions hearing, or any subsequent directions hearing. The usual commencing time is 10.00 am. 

The final hearing will usually take place in a court either in the Court’s building at 225 Macquarie Street, Sydney or, for country matters in a court in regional New South Wales.  For example, the Court has held final hearings in courthouses in Lightning Ridge and Broken Hill. The Court’s direction fixing the final hearing will state the venue.  The venue will also be stated on the Court Lists posted on the notice board in the foyer of the Court’s building and on the Court’s website on the afternoon of the day before the final hearing is to occur.  The Sydney Morning Herald may also (but does not always) publish the Court Lists on the morning of the date set for the final hearing.

A judge or Commissioner for Mining will conduct the final hearing (see s 33(2A) of the Land and Environment Court Act).  Information is available on hearings.
