Save Westernport would like to thank all our volunteers, donors and supporters for their help and encouragement during a busy 2019!
Special thanks to Environment Victoria, Crib Point Community House and the local businesses that continue to support us.
From the Peninsula’s Biggest Paddle Out at Shoreham Beach in January to the May Day community meeting at Balnarring Hall with every Federal Election candidate rejecting AGL’s gas project, we have worked hard to raise awareness of the need to stop AGL’s plans while seeking stronger legal protections for Westernport Bay’s valuable ecological character and Ramsar status.
As long as AGL persists with their proposal to import liquefied natural gas at Crib Point jetty and threaten the unique marine environment of Westernport Bay, we will continue the fight to stop this unnecessary and unjustified industrial project.
Since August 2017, AGL and its gas pipeline partner APA have sought to gain acceptance from our local communities and the Victorian State Government for this gas import project.
Their efforts will be a waste of time (and shareholder’s money) because we will never approve any heavy industry project that pollutes Westernport Bay and risks the safety of local residents and visitors.
We ask the AGL Board to make the right decision in 2020 and withdraw this flawed proposal and all the associated risks and hazards.
We wish you all a safe Christmas and a happy New Year in 2020!
