S2, E05 - Sarah Scott on the new Fast-Track Approvals Bill

In this episode, we welcome Sarah Scott from Simpson Grierson back to the podcast. The new Fast-track Approvals Bill has been a hot topic in the Environmental/Projects space for some time and Scottie gives us the inside scoop.

From what this Bill actually means to why is has been introduced to what potential outcomes may arise as a result, Scottie covers it all in her usual in-depth manner. Likening it somewhat to what we have already experienced in the Covid Fast-track Bill, this Bill already has numerous submissions to review and make decisions on.

Given the potential outcomes of more infrastructure projects and developments, it is understandable that the environmental groups have some serious concerns - particularly around the longer term thinking around our natural resources.
