Good news has been received from Jackie French. Her battle to protect her property, which is south of Braidwood and surrounding bushland, from mining damage has borne fruit. The Land and Environment Court last week ruled that greatly improved environmental controls would be applied to the project and an extensive monitoring regime (water flows, stream health, etc) would be implemented.
Permaculture Sydney North helped in a small way by making representations on behalf of Jackie to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure and we are delighted to see that that Jackie's property and the conservation values of the area will now have a good measure of protection.
The full text of Jackie's thank you message to all of her supporters follows:
"Last week the NSW Land and Environment Court handed down it's decision over the appeal against the approval conditions for the Dargues Reef Mine at Major's Creek, 4 km upstream of the Araluen Valley.
