Coal & Allied’s MTW team hits the streets of Singleton to meet supporters

July 31, 2015

Coal & Allied’s Mount Thorley Warkworth team were meeting members of the local community at Gowrie Street Mall in Singleton over the weekend.

They spoke to hundreds of locals, and got plenty of support from the local community for the Mount Thorley Warkworth project.

It’s been a long and difficult journey for the MTW workers and their families. NSW planning minister Rob Stokes proposed an amendment to the mining SEPP earlier this month, creating further anxiety about the PAC’s final decision despite the NSW Department of Planning and Environment recommending it be approved—for a second time—in May.

The SEPP change removes a provision that makes the economic importance of resources “the principal consideration”, putting thousands of jobs at risk, including those at MTW.

Community polling in June found that 67% of people surveyed in Singleton supported the continuation of Coal & Allied’s mining in the area, and that support was echoed in Gowrie Street Mall over the weekend with hundreds more people making positive submissions to the PAC at voiceformining.com.au.

The MTW team are thanking everyone that took the time to speak with them about the project and made a submission to the PAC in support of the 1300 mine workers and their families.

Today is the final chance to add your voice to the thousands who have spoken out already. Head to voiceformining.com.au now, where you can make a short submission to the PAC in support of the project. Together we can make a difference.
