Certainty for Springvale Welcomed
Thanks NSW Government, Luke Foley Leader of the Opposition and Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party representative Philip Donato for support behind the scenes.
Lithgow City Council on Monday congratulated the NSW Government for moving to legislate certainty for the Springvale Mine and its employees and their families in Lithgow.
Mayor Stephen Lesslie extended thanks to all who supported this issue, including:
- Paul Toole, the member for Bathurst,
- Luke Foley the Leader of the Opposition who attended Lithgow personally to support Centennial Coal and the Lithgow community,
- Philip Donato Member for Orange and representative of the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party who has been working with Lithgow Council and management behind the scenes supporting regional issues of interest common to both Orange and Lithgow LGA’s and
- The Lithgow Chamber of Commerce which actively lobbied in support of Springvale.
“There are so many positives resulting from the NSW Government's decision, not the least of which is the certainty of employment for Centennial Coal and its employees,” said Clr Lesslie.
“The concerns of the Lithgow Community have been listened to not only by the Government but by representatives of the NSW Opposition and the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party and hopefully this will continue in the future as strong communication and relationships are forged between all concerned,” said Clr Lesslie.
