Campbelltown. No consultation on gas plant

AGL has proposed to build a gas plant, in Varroville, as part of the Northern Expansion of the Camden Gas Project. The state government could independently approve the gas plant under part 3A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 without consulting Campbelltown City Council, which has prepared a report rejecting the proposal and outlining the negative impact it would have on health. Former Planning minister, Kristina Keneally, independently approved Leafs Gully's gas-fired power station, in Appin Road, Gilead. Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly councils and local residents opposed the $200 million plant, concerned that the air emissions would omit carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides into the region which is already under significant pressure from air pollution.
