Time is Running out!!

Submissions to the NSW on their Coal and Gas Strategy are due shortly (Friday 15th April). Submissions are important, no matter how small. The recent success of submissions against the plans for the revitalisations of Marrickville Metro are proof that it is worth taking the time to put pen to paper or fingertip to keyboard.

The scoping document can be found here (pdf, 210K at http://www.planning.nsw.gov.au/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=nyJQKwkDr6c%3D&tabid=495&language=en-AU )

Several community meetings have been attended/or hosted by members of Sydney Residents against Coal Seam Gas. We are now planning screenings of Gaslands in Marrickville, Parramatta and possibly Auburn. Let us know if you can help.

Hope to see all of you on Wednesday 13th April, St Peters Town Hall to learn about City of Sydney's plan for Trigeneration.

See over there >> for opportunities to help!
