Dataset: NSW CSG Exclusion Zone - Additional Rural Village Area v2 20140516


Description

Abstract

The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme. This dataset was derived from multiple datasets. You can find a link to the parent datasets in the Lineage Field in this metadata statement. The History Field in this metadata statement describes how this dataset was derived.

Additional Rural Village Land is land zoned R5 large lot residential (or equivalent) that meets defined 'village' criteria. It is proposed that coal seam gas activities will be prohibited in and within two kilometres of these areas.

Note a 2 km buffer was placed by ERIN around the extent of the Strategic Agricultural Land SAL Viticulture Critical Industry Cluster areas. The original data does not contain a 2 km buffer zone around future residential growth areas.

The spatial layers developed by the Bioregional Assessment programme are not available to be downloaded.

Purpose

As above

Dataset History

In 2012, the NSW Government introduced the Strategic Regional Land Use Policy (SRLUP) to better manage the potential conflicts arising from the proximity of mining and coal seam gas (CSG) activity to our high quality agricultural land, in some parts of the State.

Since the introduction of the Policy the Government has introduced safeguards for some 5.3 million hectares of residential and strategic agricultural land across the State from the impacts of new coal seam gas and mining activity.

Additional Rural Village Land is an area of interest that the Government has introduced safeguard from the impacts of new coal seam gas and mining activity.

Additional Rural Village Land is land zoned R5 large lot residential (or equivalent) that meets defined 'village' criteria. It is proposed that coal seam gas activities will be prohibited in and within two kilometres of these areas.

Note a 2 km buffer was placed by ERIN around the extent of the Strategic Agricultural Land SAL Viticulture Critical Industry Cluster areas. The original data does not contain a 2 km buffer zone around Additional Rural Village Land areas.

The Existing Residential Zones was downloaded from the NSW Government Planning and Environment website 31/1/2014.
