Welcome to the Mine Subsidence Board’s website.
The Mine Subsidence Board provides information, compensation or repair services to owners of improvements damaged by mine subsidence resulting from the extraction of coal. We operate solely for the local community in areas of coal mining in NSW.
The Mine Subsidence Board’s core responsibility is to repair and pay for damage caused by mine subsidence. Our staff have the expertise and experience to identify hazards and assess the risks for new developments, as well as formulate solutions.
Various parts of NSW are declared Mine Subsidence Districts. When building or renovating in a Mine Subsidence District guidelines apply and you will need the Mine Subsidence Board’s approval to build or subdivide. If damage does occur from subsidence due to coal mining, the support and resources of the Mine Subsidence Board are there to assist you.
Please contact us at any of our district offices should you have an enquiry. We look forward to putting the service and needs of people first.
