Battle for Bylong

The heritage-listed Bylong Valley is no place for a dirty coal mine

What relief that this damaging coal mine proposal has been refused! Check out Lock the Gate and local farmers' reaction here.

The Bylong Valley is spectacularly beautiful, rich in heritage and a productive agricultural district with highly constrained water availability. The Independent Planning Commission refused the project because of its unacceptable impacts on groundwater and strategic farmland.

Now we need the farmland of the Bylong Valley and all of NSW's most fertile farmland protected from coal mining permanently. Check out this TV ad.
