AGL gas terminal proposal in Western Port rejected

It was with a great feeling of joy that I heard the announcement that the government had rejected AGL’s plan to build a floating gas terminal at Crib Point. It is very pleasing that environmental issues have at last taken precedence over dubious economic ones. Western Port Bay is a Ramsar site, and it would have been extremely disappointing to see government ignoring their obligations under this treaty. This refusal is a tribute to the many thousands of people and organisations that have worked tirelessly over 3 years to ensure this decision. Another risk to the Eastern Curlew has been defeated!
