    Your possibly right Denise, but I for one wouldnt have a clue about how to write a submission, but I don’t let it stop me from having a go and hopefully other people are doing the same.

    To me, the only thing that really matters is letting the gov know I oppose it, and a few reasons why.

    If the rally was anything to go by, they don’t read them anyway, so more important everyone just does what they can

    An aspect of this issue which I suspect is being insufficiently addressed follows…
    Prior to the NSW state election the then Minister Tony Kelly stated “The government also says it will ensure future approvals for gas pipelines will be restricted to public land corridors and stock routes, to avoid agricultural land, such as the Liverpool plains.”

    I draw your attention to the vital role played by Travelling Stock Routes in rural Australia as corridors and refuges for native wildlife. These areas often are the only relatively undisturbed remnants along which wildlife can survive and disperse. This is recognised by enlightened organisations such as Birds Australia and others who, as part of the Stock Route Coalition (, have been working to have stock routes preserved for travelling stock and biodiversity conservation. Other public corridors will also be threatened by pipelines and infrastructure, and we need to include our specific objections to this in our submissions.

      Very good point Faye. However, I tried to address the terms of reference outlined in the strategy paper and also tried to address aspects of the scoping paper. Because we had limited time for the submission (now extended), it was done in a rush. I would have liked to have added a lot more. Can’t find the submissions on this site any more. Must have been deleted.

      Hi Denise

      The submissions have not been deleted.

      Cive & Tracy’s and Peter’s submissions may now be found in the pull down menu under Resources (Submissions).

        I also believe submissions should not be emotive.

        Where are all the others? Cheers Denise

        Hi Denise

        They are posted as comments in the various places that people posted them. First place to look is the “Action Needed” tab at the top of the page. Scroll down to view the comments – which consist in the main of people’s submissions.

        There may be a few in other parts of the site as comments.

        When I find the time I will put them all together in one place.
