Coal Seam Gas application submissions extended

THE deadline to make a submission on the coal seam gas exploration licence application which partly covers the Hawkesbury has been extended to this Friday, March 21.

The licence application, called a petroleum exploration licence, is identified as PELA 158.

It mainly covers the Blue Mountains, but includes Berambing, Bilpin, Mountain Lagoon and wilderness alongside Bowen Mountain township.

You can make a submission on-line at www.resources.nsw.gov.au/community-information/comment/titles.

Hawkesbury Environment Network is organising a mass petition.

See them at www.hen.org.au or on Facebook at HAWK.HEN.

HEN is advising respondents to look at the Stop CSG Blue Mountains site at http://stopcsgbm.net.au/docs/home.php where the PELA 158 Kit shows much more detail.
