Woomera Prohibited Area Rule
The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science is seeking public comment on the effectiveness of the current framework for access to the Woomera Prohibited Area (WPA) military land testing range. It has been recommended that the WPA military land testing range be opened up for resources exploration to the fullest extent possible, although the Department of Defence will remain the primary user of the area.
Feedback is sought on what the long-term effects of the current framework may be for the resources industry, what the experiences of stakeholders have been, and whether the framework has delivered on the Hawke Review in 2011.
Submissions are invited until Friday 9 September 2016.
