In Gloucester our natural advantage has been the excellent rainfall and clean water that have shaped flourishing agricultural and tourism industries. Our future lies in growing these industries into sustainable development opportunities that will last generations.

Proposed mining in the Gloucester Stroud Valley offers very little to the local economy, despite the claims made by the mining companies. Not only will profits largely go overseas, there are few jobs for locals likely to be created. For example, AGL’s now abandoned coal seam gas project was to provide just 11 local jobs.

The current coal mining proposed for Gloucester would damage our existing industries and the vital resources - land and water - that have sustained our region for generations and promise to do so for generations to come.
