Part 3 Clause 17
17   Rehabilitation
(1)  Before granting consent for development for the purposes of mining, petroleum production or extractive industry, the consent authority must consider whether or not the consent should be issued subject to conditions aimed at ensuring the rehabilitation of land that will be affected by the development.
(2)  In particular, the consent authority must consider whether conditions of the consent should:
(a)  require the preparation of a plan that identifies the proposed end use and landform of the land once rehabilitated, or
(b)  require waste generated by the development or the rehabilitation to be dealt with appropriately, or
(c)  require any soil contaminated as a result of the development to be remediated in accordance with relevant guidelines (including guidelines under section 145C of the Act and the Contaminated Land Management Act 1997), or
(d)  require steps to be taken to ensure that the state of the land, while being rehabilitated and at the completion of the rehabilitation, does not jeopardize public safety.
