Nature Conversation Council of New South Wales: Make a Submission to Protect the Pilliga Forest!

About this event

The Nature Conversation Council of New South Wales are asking you to make a submission to the Independent Planning Commission (IPC) regarding the 850-well coal seam gas field in the Pilliga forests wilderness near Narrabri before July 31st.

Gas giant Santos has plans to build an 850-well coal seam gas field in the Pilliga forests wilderness near Narrabri. Before this project can begin, it must be approved by the Independent Planning Commission (IPC).

The NSW Government has recommended approval of the multi-billion dollar Narrabri coal seam gas project that would have devastating consequences for nature and the climate.

The project will see 850 CSG wells drilled into the largest remaining woodland wilderness in NSW, criss-cross it with roads and pipelines, and threaten underground water supplies vital for farming.

There is still one final step in the process before this project gets the green light—it must be approved by the IPC, and they’re consulting the public until July 31st. 

Make a submission to the IPC objecting to the Narrabri coal seam gas project.

The Nature Conversation Council have provided some guiding arguments for your submission. It will have more impact if it is personalised to show your individual concerns and opposition. Please take the time to edit your submission.
