Lobbyist contact register

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment recognises the need for important decisions to be made in an open and transparent manner.

This Register lists contacts between our staff and registered lobbyists (those listed on the NSW Electoral Commission’s Register of Third Party Lobbyists) in relation to significant matters. This Contact Register is kept in accordance with the Lobbying of Government Official Act 2011 and the related NSW Lobbyists Code of Conduct which provide a framework for managing interactions with lobbyists and business contacts.
