Narrabri’s perfect dilemma

Narrabri’s perfect dilemma

The Northern Daily Leader Julie Maughan 2 Mar 2017, 11:44 a.m

Narrabri will feature harness racing again this Sunday with their big Carnival of Cups meeting presenting an eight race program.

Rubbers Dilemma from the Tony Missen stables will make a return in the opening event after the filly scored her first career win last week at Narrabri from six race starts. The win surprised Missen who trains the Blissful Hall filly – and races her along with Alan Tinden, Tamworth HRC Board member Greg McDonell and Bob Peterson – as the filly had only been in the stables for two weeks.

Narrabri Gas Project EIS leaves locals frustrated

Narrabri Gas Project EIS leaves locals frustrated

Western Magazine 3 March 2017

A 7000-page Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Narrabri Gas Project (NGP) that’s been at least five years in the making has the local community overwhelmed, with only 60 days to frame its response.

The EIS for the project was placed on public exhibition on 22 February 2017. 

Many in the community believe Santos has deliberately stymied the community’s response efforts by limiting availability of the file in an accessible electronic form.

Complying with its obligations of ease of use and accessibility, as promised to the local Community Consultative Committee.
