The NSW Planning Department has recommended that Santos’ coal seam gas project of 850 gas wells near Narrabri in north west NSW be approved.
The Department has referred the decision on this proposal to the state's Independent Planning Commission (IPC). The IPC is holding a public hearing into the project on 20-24 July and is taking submissions.
Our drinking water, our rivers and even our World Heritage areas are threatened by longwall coal mining in the greater Sydney region.
It’s time that Premier Berejiklian declared Sydney's drinking water catchment a no-go zone for coal mining.
We are at a crucial juncture in our nation’s history and we’re working doubly hard to stop any more destruction of our vital water resources and farmland for coal and gas.
A decision is expected in the next 12 weeks, so please help local farmers stop this mine.
The Regional Planning Interest Act was supposed to stop this kind of conflict between communities and mining companies but it has failed time and time again.
