NO TO PROPOSED POWER STATION AND LNG STORAGE
We the signatories to this petition, believe that the proposed power station and LNG storage in the port and detached mole area is an ill conceived idea which should not be built in an area with such a high population density.
The proposed power station and LNG storage would only add to the inherent risks associated with being next to a cruise terminal and airport, and further negatively affect the already reduced quality of the air in the area.
We the signatories also understand and appreciate that the building of a power station is a pressing priority, however we do not believe that such a power station should be built in the midst of such a large populated area in which it is proposed. We also understand that although this Government may want to introduce LNG bunkering as a means to bolster the local economy, we do not believe that this should be carried out where it adds to the risks of a highly populated area, and thought should perhaps be given to relocating such a venture to the eastside, where there are numerous disused tunnels which were onced used to store fuel safely.
