The State Government has to make up its mind. Which is more important: top farming land or unrenewable gas wells or coal mines? If it has a germ of an idea about planning for climate change, it must come out on the side of efficient agricultural production on the best land. That is the only responsible policy direction. It is clear that gas wells and land preservation are incompatible. The performance of DERM in a number of other cases suggests that this legislation will not protect farming land.
