Report on Post Implementation Review of Strong and Sustainable Resource Communities Act

The Strong and Sustainable Resource Communities Act 2017 (the Act) commenced on 30 March 2018. The Act aims to provide benefits for resource communities near large resource projects (LRP), by:

  1. prohibiting use of 100% fly-in, fly-out operational workforces at LRPs
  2. protecting local residents from being discriminated against on the basis of their place of residence, during recruitment for jobs at LRPs
  3. mandating preparation of social impact assessments for resource projects.

The Queensland Government committed to a post implementation review of the Act, starting within 18 months to two years of the Act commencing and completing it within three years.  

The Office of the Coordinator-General is leading the review and has prepared a consultation report, which details findings of the review to date, and includes draft recommendations for the future of the Act.

Interested stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on the consultation report availble at this link:
