Local Government recognises industry benefits
June 20th, 2014
Two anti-industry motions have been defeated at the peak conference for local government bodies.
The motions, which called for further restrictions and bans on the further development of a responsible natural gas industry, were defeated at the annual National Assembly of Local Government in Canberra yesterday.
In our view, this is a common sense move – and further recognition that Councils are seeing the benefits that responsible natural gas development can deliver to local communities.
