History

CCAG was formed in 2006 by concerned landowners and community members in response to a coal exploration licence issued at Caroona to ensure that mining does not destroy our environment, agricultural production, peoples livelihoods, health and attachment to the land. As extractive industries have broadened their interests across the region, CCAG now strives to protect the wider area of the Liverpool Plains to ensure that the world class agricultural resources of the area are protected and that the region continues to be a viable food bowl for not only this nation, but the world. CCAG is not opposed to mining per se. We have consistently argued for the role of independent science in the planning process, and continue to believe that this is necessary to identify and mitigate risks posed by potential development projects to the invaluable natural resources of the Liverpool Plains.
