Margaret River Saved
The decision by Environment Minister Bill Marmion to uphold the EPA’s rejection of a coal mine proposal near Margaret River provides much needed certainty for the people of Margaret River.
The Government has sent a clear message to industry that coal mines are not welcome in the region and that any future pursuance of approvals would be a waste of time and money.
The South West can continue to be the beautiful tourism region that it is now without the risk of becoming a coal province.
