An information brochure specifically written for Scenic Rim residents was produced by the group and is now being distributed throughout communities including Beaudesert and Boonah. A series of informal ‘drop-in’ sessions are being conducted at Beaudesert, Tamborine Mountain and Boonah for anyone interested in learning more about coal seam gas including the location of exploration permits across the region.
With approximately 90% of the Scenic Rim covered by coal and coal seam gas exploration permits plus a proposal to develop a major gas pipeline through the region from northern NSW to Swanbank via the Border Ranges, Lions Road and Bromelton, KTSRS is urging residents to get informed and get active about the situation. Scenic Rim Regional Council supports the group’s work and Councillor Kathy Bensted is a Council representative within the group. Council is preparing a submission to the Queensland Government to have coal and coal seam gas mining banned in the Scenic Rim.
