Thought the O'Farrell Government had gone quiet on coal seam gas mining? Well think again. This is what Northern Rivers Nationals MPs Page, Gulaptis and George are about to help push through the NSW Parliament

This NSW draft legislative amendment set out below allegedly has the aim to increase confidence for investors and the community about how decisions are made on mining proposals by making the ‘significance of the resource’ the consent authority’s principal consideration under Part 3 of the Mining SEPP when determining a resource DA.

There are apparently five days left in the community consultation period and one can make an online submission.

Did anyone on the NSW North Coast see this amendment advertised in local newspapers? Did either Don Page, Chris Gulaptis or Thomas George alert local communities to this move by Premier O’Farrell and Resources Minister Chris Hartcher?
