NSW Central Coast

Margaret Gleeson reports on a resident-organised protest aimed at getting a dirty coal-fired power station on the NSW Central Coast to clean up its act.

The federal government has given the ageing privately-owned Vales Point coal fired power station on the NSW Central Coast a public funding boost, writes Margaret Gleeson.

Hours before polling booths opened for the state elections, the NSW Land and Environment Court announced late on March 22 that it was dismissing by community group Australian Coal Alliance (ACA) against the re-elected Coalition government’s approval of the controversial Wallarah 2 coalmine on the Central Coast.
