EPA rejects Margaret River coal mine

LD Operations' proposed Margaret River coal mine has been given a resounding 'no' from the Environmental Protection Authority, which said the project would place serious widespread, irreversible risks on the region's environment.

As a resident of Margaret River for most of my life i feel this is a resounding victory for the region, the environment and for the tourism of the area. This project stands to make a lasting, negative impact on the region that cannot be adequately quantified to justify this project. The minister needs to take heed of this finding and ultimately ensure the EPA is not undermined.

This decision by the EPA is an absolute joke. There is nothing to protect in this environmentally degraded agicultural area and yet they allow Gorgon to proceed on Barrow Island????. I will wager also that they find that Barnetts James Price Point gas hub in a truly pristine environment will not be unacceptable " if managed properly "
