Lithgow Council’s response to the Federal Opposition Announcement regarding Mount Piper

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 20 Jun 2024
This Council has a historical position on nuclear energy. This position acknowledges that other levels of government determine these policies, but it also signals that Lithgow City Council is cautious about activities involving nuclear processes.

Clearly, we lack detail about the Opposition’s announcement on Wednesday.  

Two things define this Council, first, we are focused on creating a strong future for this city and, second, we make decisions informed by the facts.   

We will rely on these principles when forming a view about today’s announcement. 

One thing I will say about today’s announcement, is that it only announces a site. It is not enough to just announce a site. 

Every single day this Council is focused on -  

  • Capturing the benefits of major developments in this city, 
  • Greatly increasing the number of local jobs,  
  • Transitioning the existing workforce to new jobs of the future, 
  • Big investment by governments in this city, and, 
  • Protection of our wonderful environment.  

This Council will be seeking detail from the Opposition about their jobs plan, their workforce transitioning plan, their commitment for more substantial investment in Lithgow and, of course, their environmental policy.
