Hoorah for the Wallarah 2 Coal Project and the Land and Environment Court dismissing the last appeal by the Australian Coal Alliance (ACA) against the Wallarah 2 Coal Project.
The ACA is a small but noisy group of people who have managed to influence politicians of all colours over the years.
They even got $20,000 of residents’ money from this Council that went to lawyers.
It could have gone to fixing the main road through Charmhaven where turning right northbound is a hazard.
I reckon the whole shire will benefit from the Wallarah 2 Coal Project.
The economy will get a boost from 300 hundred miner jobs and hundreds of flow on jobs and apprenticeships for our young people, which are badly needed.
People will raise their families here.
Homes will be bought and sold.
Council will have more money to do the jobs that Council should be doing.
Maybe after all, we should thank the ACA for forcing the various government departments to really focus a big microscope on the application for the Wallarah 2 Coal Project, and have it passed with flying colours and it will be environmentally responsible.
It’s time the ACA pulled their heads in and turn their energies towards something more important like the homeless and affordable housing for the less fortunate of our society.
