Roy’s Round-Up

Roy’s Round-Up

Roy Butler MP

It has been another busy fortnight, one week sitting in Parliament, and since Parliament rose, I have been in Canberra talking water and energy with federal actors. I also managed to slip down to Eden Monaro where Matt Stadtmiller is running for the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party in the by-election. Matt and I spent a couple of days talking to locals and looking at the impact of recent devastating fires. We also turned to locals for advice on what needed to happen to prepare for the next fires.

In early July I am heading out to Coonamble, Walgett and Lightning Ridge. I hope to speak to plenty of people, and report back on the work we have been doing relevant to their communities.

Please keep your guard up on Coronavirus, as we see people moving around more and more, social distancing and hand hygiene is our best defence to keep the virus at bay. You have done an amazing job, hopefully in coming months we can see zero cases, and get back to a more normal life.

'If you've never seen a gas drilling site up close, they're not pretty'

'If you've never seen a gas drilling site up close, they're not pretty'

Opinion - John Tough

After years of delays, the NSW state government has approved the expansion of the controversial Narrabri gas project, despite opposition from many in the local community. 

The project, which was opposed by the vast majority of submissions during the consultation process, could involve up to 850 new coal seam gas wells being drilled on 1,000 hectares of a 95,000 hectare site covering the Pilliga forest and nearby farm land.

If you've never seen a gas drilling site up close, they're not pretty. 

Towers being raised across the countryside, orange flames from gas flares, glaring floodlights, constant noise from the grind of the drill - and that's not even touching on the potential for land and water pollution from fugitive emissions during the drilling process.

NINE community projects from across the Narrabri shire are set to benefit from a welcome funding boost thanks to the state government.

More than $1.6 million will be injected into the region as a part of the state government’s stronger country communities program and will be distributed between the nine projects.

Narrabri Shire Council prepares for Inland Rail project

Author: Kate

WITH the development of one of the country’s largest nation building projects on its doorstep, Narrabri Shire Council is looking to plan for the future.

The planning comes as plans for the Inland Rail Project come to light and are designed to maximise the benefits for the shire.

The council has recruited the services of Arcadis Australia Pacific to implement detailed documentation on the benefits and viability of a substantial commercial and industrial estate to ensure it maximises the benefits.

Narrabri shire mayor Cathy Redding said the district is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the upcoming development, and all the opportunities entailed.

BOGGABRI CBD benefits from drought Communities Program

Boggabri

Boggabri's CBD has received a face-lift thanks to more than $80,000 in drought funding. 

Seven businesses in Merton Street have been spruced up in recent weeks by Narrabri Shire Council, which received funding under the Drought Communities Program to update and repair facades and awnings in the shire.

It was a godsend for the Commercial Hotel's new owners, Britt and David Poole, who said the historic building "hadn't been given any serious love for a long time".
