We do not want the gas pipeline. It's dangerous and irresponsible, with
great risk to the environment. For the sake of our children and our
sustainable future please reject this unwanted pipeline.

This project should not go ahead. The fossil fuel industry is a toxic
industry from start to finish and we should be transitioning to
renewable energy. The vast majority of Australians recognize that
climate change is a reality and the only ones that will really benefit
from this is the multi national corporations. I strongly object to
this project.

Message
As a resident and ratepayer in the LGA of Moree Plains Shire Council, I
object to the extension of the pipeline going through. It is one step
closer to allowing CSG being sought in our area. We rely very heavily
on the Great Artesian Basin for it's water and any potential activity
that could destroy this or our valuable farmland would also destroy
us.

Message
This pipeline traverses ten local government areas, crossing several
rivers and beautiful farmland and bushland between the Queensland
border and Newcastle.

It passes by the Pilliga, and the company behind the pipeline is eager
to transport CSG drilled from the Pilliga to Queensland or Newcastle.
It passes through rich cropping lands south of Moree and on the
Liverpool Plains
It crosses the Namoi River five times, and the Hunter River on the
outskirts of Aberdeen, Morpeth and Tomago, cutting the wetlands of Ash
Island to the North Arm of the Hunter River on Kooragang Island.

The company claims there are no changes to the environmental or
amenity impacts, but that ignores changes that happen over time. New
ecological communities have been listed as endangered, National Parks
have been extended, new towns have emerged and existing towns have
grown, new farming enterprises have been embarked upon, and the
justification for the project has dramatically changed.

The landscape through which this pipeline proposes to run has changed
over the last decade and with it, so has the impact this pipeline will
inflict on people, the environment and local economies. It is not
acceptable for the Department of Planning to extend the deadline for
this consent by another five years.

Pipelines such as that proposed have caused much damage to communities
and the environment both locally and overseas. They should be treated
with extreme caution.

Please consider seriously the problems encountered by the community
featured in the link provided below.

We cannot afford to have this type of situation all the way along the
very long distance proposed by the developer.

I lived in Narrabri for 10 years and this pipeline will damage many parts
of the environment, as for crossing the Namoi five times, I can't
imagine the damage this will do, never mind the productive farmland.
I'm sick and tired of governments going gung ho for fossil fuel
accomodations at the cost of the land and the people. It has to stop.

It is my understanding that this pipeline traverses ten local government
areas (a recipe for disaster should a leak occur), crossing several
rivers and beautiful farmland and bushland between the Queensland
border and Newcastle.
* It passes by the Pilliga, and the company behind the pipeline is
eager to transport CSG drilled from the Pilliga to Queensland or
Newcastle.
* It passes through rich cropping lands south of Moree and on the
Liverpool Plains
* It crosses the Namoi River five times, and the Hunter River on the
outskirts of Aberdeen, Morpeth and Tomago, cutting through the
wetlands of Ash Island to the North Arm of the Hunter River on
Kooragang Island.
Please listen to the people of Australia, we do not want CSG gas or
drilling anywhere in our beautiful country.

Approval for the above pipeline should be allowed to lapse, as originally
determined.
Amenities in the significant area of land covered by the proposed
pipeline have increased over the past 10 years, meaning that such a
pipeline will impact much more severely on the environment and economy
within this area.
The present application seems to have been drafted in haste with
little consideration for the additional damage it will now cause.
The prudent and ethical decision would be to allow the approval to
lapse.

I object to this project because:
The pipeline traverses ten local government areas, crossing several
rivers and valuable farmland and bushland between the Queensland
border and Newcastle.
It also passes through rich cropping lands south of Moree and on the
Liverpool Plains, agricultural lands of national significance.
It crosses the Namoi River five times, and the Hunter River on the
outskirts of Aberdeen, Morpeth and Tomago, cutting the wetlands of Ash
Island to the North Arm of the Hunter River on Kooragang Island.
The company claims there are no changes to the environmental or
amenity impacts, but have ignored changes that have taken place since
the original application was lodged. New ecological communities have
been listed as endangered, National Parks have been extended, new
towns have emerged and existing towns have grown, new farming
enterprises have been embarked upon, and the justification for the
project has dramatically changed.
The landscape through which this pipeline proposes to run has changed
over the last decade and with it, so has the impact this pipeline will
inflict on people, the environment and local economies. It is not
acceptable for the Department of Planning to extend the deadline for
this consent by another five years. This approval must lapse and if
the proponent so desires a completely new application must be lodged
taking into account the above issues.

I am an Australian living overseas. The environment is changing rapidly
and ecosystems are being impacted in ways that could not have been
envisaged ten years ago when this project was given permission. New
assessments should br made and the application should start from
scratch not have an extension in light of this.

This application is an unnecessary use of resources.

CSG is being devested by many companies and countries as renewable
alternatives become more attractive financially, environmentally and
socially.

CSG has serious impacts on water tables in Australia and will impact
farming and future industries for years to come.

Our govt. should be providing leadership and stability for business to
move into more and varied renewables.

Your consideration for this is greatly appreciated.

Fracking CSG is not proven to be 100% safe, in regards to possible
contamination of precious groundwater. It would be ridiculous to allow
CSG fracking in this prime agricultural area, where of course all the
groundwater resources are interconnected. It goes without saying that
a pipeline for CSG wouldn't therefore be needed.

Message
Projects such as this pipeline are not only outdated and a blot on the
landscape but they also present dangers to the communities through
which or near to which they pass. Accidents from damage to pipelines
carrying highly flammable liquids are not infrequent and can arise
from many different occurrences: earth tremors and human interventions
as examples.
Let us please move onwards towards truly renewable generation and
spend the apparently scare financial resources available on projects
that do not harm to the environment.
