Toowoomba Regional Council councillor wants input on mining ...

10 November 2009

John McVeigh is prepared to do what few politicians would — risk his popularity.

The Toowoomba Regional councillor wants the council to have a say on new mining applications without regard for the consequences.

“No matter how unpopular or contentious that makes us, we want a seat at the table,” he said in a committee meeting yesterday.

The council is currently a bystander to the development of mining projects in the region with decision-making power resting solely with the State and Federal governments.
