    This mine must be stopped. 85% of the Central Coast’s water comes from the Valleys and to put this in jeopardy is beyond comprehension. This region is one of the fastest urban growth areas in Australia, and coal is an outdated resource. People claiming there will be jobs created need to relook at the situation. 300 jobs is not worth our future, our health or our homes. If they have to move power pylons because of mine subsidence do people really think their homes won’t suffer? Water is a far more valuable resource than coal. I hope sense prevails
