Oppose burning forests in Redbank power station

Energy start-ups have plans to woodchip a million tonnes of North Coast forests each year to feed biomass power stations in the Hunter Valley and overseas. 

Singleton Council is currently reviewing an application from Redbank power station, which has been closed since 2014, to restart to burn native forest woodchips.  

Let’s show them that this project faces overwhelming community opposition. 

Add your name to our petition to the Singleton Council and the Court. 

With our forests already fragile, and wildlife like koalas in decline, these forests can’t be turned into woodchips. 

The Nature Conservation Council's original submission can be viewed here.

Dear Singleton Council and Land and Environment Court, 

The Redbank Power Station proposal to burn native forest woodchips for electricity generation will have unacceptable impacts on our forest biodiversity. 

We oppose this development, and call on you to reject it in order to protect our native forests and wildlife from this destructive proposal.

Will you sign?
