City of Busselton Council to vote on city’s coal mining and fracking position

John Butler held Frack Off concerts in 2016 objecting to the gas onshore industry setting up in the South West.

These types of applications are handled by the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, and may be endorsed or objected to by council during the consultation phase.

While applications of this nature are rare, city officers and the policy committee noted that coal mining and hydraulic fracturing had potential to jeopardise groundwater.

It was also noted that coal mining conflicted with agriculture, viticulture and tourism, along with community concern about the impact of coal mining.
