Historic environmental authorities

The department issues permits (environmental authorities) for environmentally relevant activities, including resource activities.

This portal includes the most recent version of a permit that was cancelled or surrendered prior to 2016. Permits may be cancelled at the request of the holder or due to an action taken by the administering authority.

Search Environmental authorities for current permits, or permits that were suspended, expired, surrendered, or cancelled from 2016 onwards.

When searching for historic permits for a resource activity, please use the appropriate industry field:

  • for coal mining select ‘Coal’
  • for petroleum and gas activities select ‘Petroleum and Gas’
  • for all other mining select ‘Minerals’
  • for all prescribed (non-resource related) activities, use ‘Industry and Development’.
