Don’t let O’Farrell get away with his draft Code of Practice for CSG Mining
 
Only 80 hours left
 
Last year more than 1500 submissions – from farmers, city folk, organisations, the catholic church, water experts, academics - were received by the NSW Upper House Enquiry into Coal Seam Gas. But before the enquiry report is even out the O’Farrell government released its draft Strategic Regional Land Use Policy (SRLUP) documents include its draft Code of Practice for CSG Mining. These documents do not address community concerns over the severe and long term risks of CSG mining to agricultural lands, state forests, underground aquifers and they do not ban mining on any of our most sensitive environmental areas and most productive farming land.

Responses to these SRLUP docs close 3 May, the upper house enquiry report into CSG due out 7 May. Keep up the pressure  and send a submission by 3 May.  Email to srlup@planning.nsw.gov.au
 
Some tips for making your submission
·         Use your own words, talk about the impact, make it personal.
·         Here are some other sample submissions from Upper House Enquiry into CSG last year BGSP, Keith Muir, Alison Topaz .
·         Here’s some talking points to consider prepared by our group.

This year’s May day will not be a dance around the May pole but a rally outside parliament. The sentiment though will be 100% focussed on getting better policy from O’Farrell and his ministers for CSG.  People from every political background across NSW including small farming towns on the Liverpool plains, the Hunter Valley and rivers and beach towns of Northern NSW are attending.

Looking ahead
STOP COAL SEAM GAS human sign
We are planning to build a human sign in Sydney Park spelling out our message: STOP COAL SEAM GAS on Saturday 13 October 2012. The group chose this date to coincide with the Lock the Gate National Day of Action. If you are interested in being involved please contact Sandy on. Our next working group meeting is at 6pm on Wednesday 2 May at Berkelouw Bookshop, 6 O'Connell Street, Newtown. All welcome
