Reject the Arthurs Seat Quarry

The relevant Ministers need their attention drawn to what is at stake if this quarry proceeds, and they need to hear a range of voices, including yours. They cannot hide behind "due process" - the Environmental Effects Statement (EES) process is designed to get applications over the line.

The Ministers need to know that we care.

Only widespread objection will make the difference.

 

The Victorian State Government will be asked to approve this quarry first. You can write to each of these Ministers and tell them that EES or not, Victorians don't want this mine.

 

We Want Arthurs Seat Saved.

We have included some helpful points below that you may wish to include, or if you prefer, a standard letter for your use or for inspiration can be downloaded here.

In your email, you may wish to:

  • Ask Minister Wynne to reject the proposal 

  • Highlight the significance of the region for all Victorians - environmental, cultural, economic and recreational

  • Remind them of their own reports which list a number of more suitable quarry sites

  • Land of such high conservation value and so sensitively situated should not be open to industrial exploitation. This is an anomoly from a bygone era and should be redressed by integrating it into the State Park.

If the Victorian Government approves this mine then the Federal Minister for the Environment will be asked to give it a final tick. You can let her know now that, if this happens, you want her to say NO. Write to:
