Council refutes telephone survey suggestions

11 May, 2017

Wingecarribee Shire Council has today quashed suggestions that it is involved in telephone surveys relating to the proposed Hume Coal Mine project or Hume Coal Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) currently on exhibition.

“Council is not, nor has ever, conducted any survey of residents by telephone or otherwise on the Hume Coal proposal,” said Council’s General Manager, Ann Prendergast.

The query was raised by Councillor Larry Whipper in General Business during Wednesday evening’s Ordinary Meeting of Council on behalf of representations made to him by residents.

“Should anyone receive any call or contact from persons claiming to be from Council regarding the Hume Coal EIS, I urge them to take what details they can and contact Council immediately,” Ms Prendergast said.

Wingecarribee Shire Council’s 24 hour contact number is 4868 0888.
