The Queensland Times carried an article recently on coal exploration permits in this and surrounding areas.
Wayne Wendt, the state MP for Ipswich West is in the process of arranging a meeting with relevant departmental representatives to discuss the issues of mining exploration permits. Details of the meeting will be posted here as soon as they are available.
Don’t forget that you can approach Wayne directly with questions either by telephone 3813 0074 or 1800 814 856 or via email: Ipswich.West@parliament.qld.gov.au
Please bear in mind that what we are seeking is information and transparency in order to have local input before decisions are made. Once permits are granted, land access laws take effect. Click here for information on Queensland’s Land Access Laws.
