Land secured for Broome gas precinct
Bad news for country and community with the announcement that the WA Government has been successfully in compulsorily acquiring the land between James Prices Point and Quandong (Walmadany and Murdudun) for the development of a service and supply base for offshore gas projects in the Browse basin. Not sure at this stage how the recent court outcome over the EPA’s botched EIS process will affect any proposed development on these lands.
Today, finally some justice as Chief Justice Wayne Martin ruled that the EPA and W.A. Government’s approvals processes for the gas hub at James Prices Point were unlawful.
I hope the folk walking the Lurujarri Dreaming Trail at the moment are celebrating with Goolarabooloo and country at Wirrar/Barred Creek today. Blessings to this country and the people who held a high feeling of connection throughout the dark times.
