The Lock The Gate Alliance is a national alliance of over 90 community, industry and environmental groups, over 180 individual members and over 850 supporters concerned with the devastating impact that certain inadequately assessed and inadequately-regulated fossil fuel extraction industries are having on our short and long term physical, social, environmental and economic wellbeing. We are particularly concerned with the damage caused by the coal and coal seam gas (CSG) mining industries.
Fighting to preserve our beautiful district – lush farmland, a popular tourist destination, and a world heritage wilderness – from the ravages of mining for gas, coal, gold and other minerals.
The communities of Broke Bulga Fordwich & Milbrodale have come together to form the HBGAG Association. The members represent the overwhelming majority of the local community supporting the preservation of the area.
On March 9, 2011 in Singleton- More then four hundred Hunter citizens came to the Coal and Gas Strategy meeting organised by NSW Dept. of Planning.
We hope that the Minister and all the government officials took home this simple message: “There is no support for uncontrolled gas and coal mining in the Hunter!”.
