I wish to object to this application as I live directly in front of this mine and have lived here for just on 25 years The idea of a mine west of Blue Haven is not welcome one only has to listen to the Newcastle news & read of the poor air quality they live in plus all the coal dust over their homes reading the Morriset paper showing as the paper described it a Cyclone of coal dust We at Blue Haven do NOT WANT OR NEED THIS I have already lost my beloved husband to CANCER another thing that is also attributed to some cancers I am elderly who is going to clean my home of all this coal dust I will not believe that there will be none also what about the water I drink straight from the tap how will that be Please don't go ahead with this idea just leave our beautiful area ALONE

I have witnessed first hard the coal mining operations in the local area, and strongly beleive that coal mining operations conducted with correct controls pose no risk to the health of people or risk to the environment . Coal mining makes a positive contribution to both the local area economy and the state Gov coffers.

Please accept this submission in support of the Wallarah 2 Coal Project.

I believe this project offers significant employment and economic stimulus opportunities to Wyong and the greater regional area which are very much needed.

Growing up on the land in a rural community I have firsthand experience as to what such a project like Wallarah brings to the local community and economics for the region as a hole. With this experience I wholly support the approval of and the ongoing production of Wallarah 2 Coal Project.

Should you require any further clarification or wish to discuss my point in further detail, please do not hesitate to contact me.

We at Mcorp are totally supportive of the proposed underground mine at Wyong for the following reasons:

Employment generated will be of huge benefit to our regional area that is in urgent need for local opportunities for particulary our youth.

Trickle through demand for associated manufacturing & service industries creating activity & demand & economic benefits to our local area.

Training & skills development for our local people with possibilities for innovation and continued industry development.

Increased revenues on local / state & federal levels.

We urge that an early & favourable decision be achieved with this project. I am available for further input relating to this submission.

Kind regards

I think it is long overdue. I moved away due to lack of jobs in my field for that area.

This project will bring to the Wyong and Central Coast regions many opportunities for employment and business. Coal mining can exist in our local areas alongside residential and small business as proven by the many existing mines located around the bottom end of Lake Macquarie.

I support the Wallarah 2 Coal Project because it is committed to providing lasting benefits to the local community, without threatening residential areas or the Central Coast water supply.
Mining is proposed for only a small section of the Western area of the existing exploration tenements, with no plans to mine the eastern areas beneath Tuggerah Lake.
Great job opportunity for the local Wyong and surrounding areas.
I fully support this project.

We support the Wallarah 2 Coal Project Development Application due to the economic benefits of the project to local and regional employment and to the NSW and Australian Economy. We are a small business who depends on a strong mining industry and the flow on benefits from such a project is crutial to small business survival in the mining sector.

The development of the Wallarah 2 project is important to the local mining community as there are some established mines that are either coming to the end of there life cycle or struggling to compete against the bigger collieries in the Hunter Valley and the Gunnedah region if Wallarah 2 does not get approval it will continue to hurt the mining industry, its suppliers and the local buisnesses as the men that work in the industry will have to either relent to fly in fly out mining or move their families to an area where the industry is still strong once the remaining mines close down.
Coalmines are well aware of their responsibilities to the enviroment and the subsidence issues, the mines are able to develop and design there mines to minimise the effect of these issues.The people that do not agree with the approval have no understanding of the way that mining is undertaken and thus are scared of the very unlikely issues that some people are declaring to gaining disapproval of this project.
I have lived around the lake macqaurie area for 43 years and know of people that do not realise that the local mines are very close to the places that they live I have 27 years in the mining industry as production worker and undermanager. Education of the mining procedure is the key to lesson the fears of people opposing this project.

I am very concerned about the impact this mine will have on the local environment. Despite the EIS claiming there will be minimal impact, it is clear that the mine poses significant risk to the water table and will cause major damage to the local environment.

This mine is not welcome in the local community and should not be approved. The benefits in terms of jobs and export income will be temporary, but the damage to the environment and to the local community will be permanent. A foreign company will reap the benefits of raping our land, and we are the ones who will have to live with destroyed landscapes, land subsidence, polluted water and loss of animal habitat.

We do not want this mine!
