Thanks for saving Bylong!

Please write a very short message, in your own words, to the Independent Planning Commission and the NSW Government for rejecting the risky Bylong coal mine.  Congratulate them for listening to the experts and protecting this incredible area for its rich soils, precious groundwater and unique heritage values. This means the historic Tarwyn Park property, the home of Natural Sequence Farming, will not be mined.

    Thank you for protecting this beautiful place, we need to STOP the globalists and their multinational corporations from destroying our planet and enslaving us.

    A wise decision – thank you. Our future and our children’s future are all at risk with coal mining. It is wonderful to know that the people of the Bylong

    Valley can now farm and live with peace of mind.

    I hope you will have the same approach for the mining request for the Pilliga Forest area. Again the local farmers and towns people need the reassurance that their land, water and air will not be put at risk for corporate greed.

    A healthy environment leads to a healthy economy :)

    Congratulations for rejecting the Bylong coal mine — such a difficult but forward thinking decision that will help protect our future — not only because it protects precious agricultural land and water, and a valley that is scenically important, but also because of the enormous impacts of coal on climate change. Thank you for such a landmark decision that will help frame future decisions.

    Thank you for saying no to a new coal mine in the Bylong Valley. This decision will have a positive and profound effect on the local community, farming land, and water quality. More importantly, these are the decisions Australia needs to be making with regards to minimising and mitigating climate change. Clean energy is the future, not more coal mines. Thankyou again.
