MEDIA RELEASE For Coal and CSG Free Mirboo North

AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

21ST June 2015

COAL & CSG INFORMATION CENTRE OPENS

Invitations for submissions to the Victorian Inquiry into Onshore Unconventional Gas (CSG), have recently been called for. As we are subject to CSG Exploration licences as well as coal licences in our district, it is vital that as many residents as possible have their voice heard by the Inquiry Committee and send in a submission. Submissions need to be in by July 10th.

http://www.parliament.vic.gov.au/epc/references-committee-inquiries/article/2636

Recently we have heard that Mantle Mining has been granted a coal exploration licence for the surrounds of Mirboo North, it is essential that we send objection letters to government and council about this issue as well.

In an endeavour to help residents with this, Coal and CSG Free Mirboo North are opening a Coal and CSG Information and Drop-in Centre at the Community Shed. We will be available to help people write letters and submissions, give them access to current maps, sample letters and general information on these issues. There will be two new petitions to sign, Lock the Gate signs and other merchandise for sale. People can also just come in, have a cuppa and chat about how they’re affected by the potential of having these industries our area.

The Centre will open at the following times from Wed 24th June for two to three weeks as needed.

Monday & Tuesdays… 10am till 1pm

Tuesday Evenings… 5pm till 7pm.

Wednesdays & Fridays… 10am onwards.

Community Shed, Burchell Lane Mirboo North
