Dudgeon Point coal terminal extension: Petition to Queensland Coordinator General

The proposed Dudgeon Point Coal Terminals Project (DPCT) consists of two coal export terminals, and associated infrastructure, with a combined capacity of up to 180 million tonnes per annum.

Mackay Conservation Group (MCG) is concerned about this project and is working to protect our health, our community and the Great Barrier Reef from the threat of the Dudgeon Point Coal Port and the damage it will cause.

Dear Mr. Barry Broe, 

Please give residents of Mackay peace of mind by not extending the time period for the Dudgeon Point coal terminal. 

We the undersigned are very concerned about the impacts of the proposed Dudgeon Point coal terminal on the residents and local environment in Mackay. Our concerns include: coal dust in the port side residential communities, the damage caused by the dredging of 14 million cubic metres which will pollute the local marine environment and the increased number of coal ships.

The Dudgeon Point coal terminal project will be taken out of the environmental approvals process in late June 2014 unless you extend the time period for the proponents to provide an Environmental Impact Statement. We call on you not to extend the time period for the project out of consideration for the residents of Mackay who are living with uncertainty in relation to the project and the impacts of the project on air and water quality in the region.

Signed,

    I want my grandchildren to be able to experience the delight that I’ve felt when spending time on The Great Barrier Reef.

    Industrial development can only cause harm. No amount of money is worth that destruction.

    Australia’s heart is being broken. The world stands to lose something that can never be replaced.

    I live in close proximity to the coal terminal and am sufferring severe health issues which I am sure are worsened by coal dust from the terminal.

    As a former resident of Mackay – up until April this year – I know what the damaging effects of coal dust pollution can be. I also fear the impacts on the GBR of yet more dredging and spoil disposal. This project is unnecessary, because coal mining should be reduced not increased, and it should not be given permission to go ahead.
