Lock The Gate slams pol­icy

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL group Lock the Gate has hit out at the na­tion’s pol­icy on set­ting aside valu­able en­vi­ron­men­tal ar­eas for “off­sets” from new de­vel­op­ments, in a sub­mis­sion to a Se­nate in­quiry.

That sub­mis­sion has la­belled it a poorly en­forced “fail­ure”. The in­quiry is ex­am­in­ing the poli­cies that de­mand min­ers and de­vel­op­ers set aside unique en­vi­ron­ments from dam­age, if projects will likely dam­age ex­ist­ing valu­able ar­eas.
