A new demolition date for the Port Kembla stack is a step closer after several regulatory bodies visited the site yesterday.
The demolition was planned for September 5 but was postponed by the NSW Planning Department because of the need for more information.
A spokesman said the department needed to be sure the work was safe and the demolition methods appropriate.
Yesterday, representatives from the NSW Planning Department, WorkCover, the Environmental Protection Authority, Wollongong City Council and NSW Police met Port Kembla Copper general manager Ian Wilson to review the demolition plans.
Mr Wilson said the meeting went well.
"We got good feedback, which we will incorporate into our plans, which will take us a couple of weeks," Mr Wilson said.
"Within a few weeks we should be announcing a new date for the demolition."
Mr Wilson said PKC already had planning approval to demolish the stack and the latest process was so the planning department could sign off on the demolition management plan.
He said that once a date was set, there would be another round of community notification to ensure everyone was aware of the demolition.
