Coal Seam Gas

Cessnock Council unanimously votes against coal seam gas

At the Cessnock Council Meeting on 6 October 2010, Councillor Dale Troy moved a rescission motion on part of the Cessnock LEP 2010 to put an amendment to exclude mining and extractive activities from the zone containing the vineyards.

This motion, seconded by Councillor James Ryan, welcomed by WAGE and the Hunter Valley Protection Alliance (HVPA) was supported without contest by the Council.
