WA government rejects Margaret River coal

A bid to mine coal in Western Australia's sensitive southwest tourism and wine-producing region has been rejected by the state government after the proponent appealed the original Environmental Protection Authority decision.

WA Environment Minister Bill Marmion announced today he had upheld an earlier decision by the EPA to reject the proposal by Vasse Coal Management to develop a mine north-east of Margaret River.

This is coming from same chap who allowed controlled burning to occur on a 37 degree day, and he's worried about environmental impact from digging something out of the ground ...More like it will decrease the values of his and his back hander mates family holiday homes...

Margaret River
The CME is only happy if it gets its own way and any decision that doesn't reflect this is flawed in its view.
