New Acland Judicial Review outcome welcome

2 May 2018

New Hope Corporation welcomes today's judgment of the Supreme Court of Queensland on its application for a Judicial Review of the 31 May 2017 Land Court of Queensland recommendation in respect of the New Acland Coal Mine Stage Three Project.



The Supreme Court found grounds for review have been established in the areas of groundwater, noise and intergenerational equity with the consequence that it would be appropriate to order the Land Court’s decision be set aside, and the matter referred back to the Land Court for further consideration.


We remain committed to securing approval for this Project and in doing so being able to provide ongoing employment for the circa 700 jobs reliant on the Project.
