Rod Downs , of  North Rocks NSW, made the following submission on the project:

Change to mining policy

I strongly support this policy change. Social & environmental considerations MUST receive AT LEAST equal weighting when applications for mining and Gas extraction are made - especially where our water quality may be impacted.

The people of NSW must have governments that protect us from those who are only interested in profit with no consideration for the needs of the ordinary people and the environment which is why I give my full support for this proposed policy change, we need more like it.
