Transcript

  • 1. The Associa+on of Mining Rela+on Councils
  • 2. To be the peak body in NSW empowering and resourcing local councils and their communi+es to address the challenges and opportuni+es created by mining.
  • 3. Through collabora+on, advocacy, resource development, strategic ini+a+ves, communica+on, partnership and support to build member value, to strengthen local capacity and to generate voice on mining related issues.
  • 4. To assist in the development of partnerships, advocacy, support and resources so that stakeholders are empowered to protect the interests of their communi+es.
  • 5. The Associa+on of Mining Related Councils (AMRC) represents 23 local government councils in NSW.... Bland Shire Council, Blayney Shire Council, Broken Hill City Council, Campbelltown City Council, Cabonne Shire Council, Cessnock City Council, Cobar Shire Council, Gunnedah Shire Council, Lachlan Shire Council, Lithgow City Council, Liverpool Plains Shire Council, Mid-Western Regional Council, Narrabri Shire Council, Narromine Shire Council, Newcastle City Council, Orange City Council, Parkes Shire Council, Singleton Council, Upper Hunter Shire Council, Warrumbungle Shire Council, Wentworth Shire Council, Wollondilly Shire Council and Wollongong City Council.
  • 6. Organisa(onal Structure The Associa+on’s mission is to advocate on behalf of members and their communi+es on mining related issues and to ensure that mining ac+vity is conducted in accordance with the principles of Ecologically Sustainable Development.
  • 7. AMRC cri(cal outputs will include but not be limited to the following subject areas: • Learning from the Past: Best Prac+ce in community and government response to the influx of mining into new regions / the cri+cal up scaling of mining ac+vity • Iden+fying and implemen+ng Best Prac+ce in Community Engagement and Consulta+on • Managing the social, community and economic cumula+ve impacts of mining including but not limited to impacts on housing, health and community services, compe++on for labour, co-­‐existence with agricultural and air quality. • Addressing the complexi+es and possibili+es of the roles and responsibili+es of each level of government in the assessment of development applica+ons – the complexi+es, overlaps and resource implica+ons. • Looking to the Future: Building a Posi+ve Path for Regional Communi+es in the years aVer Mining
  • 8. The Associa(on of Mining Related Councils is not an(-­‐mining The AMRC is a body of Councils united by the impact that mining has, and is having. Working together, Councils can learn from each other and influence policy. AMRC members have recognised a need to unite to achieve a better deal for their communities – to see greater benefits from mining operations flow back into the LGAs where they exist and impact on local resources, infrastructure and services.
  • 9. • The Current Issues Associa+on has developed a Coal Seam Gas (CSG) policy to represent an overall posi+on, while recognising individual council’s values and priori+es • Voluntary Planning Agreements (between mining companies and councils) exist in NSW and are being scru+nised by the Associa+on, with a policy framework being developed to reflect member council’s views. • Some infrastructure cost burdens in regional NSW have been mining related. A sustainable revenue source is needed, other than general Local Government rates. • The NSW Government has introduced its own scheme, known as “Resources for Regions”. Grant alloca+ons to some mining affected councils. The Associa+on has monitored the evolu+on of this program, with the AMRC CEO serving as a “Resources for Regions” panel member. The Associa+on is s+ll not sa+sfied and believes that all member councils deserve to be included under the criteria. • Some councils have implemented specific mining rates on associated developments in their area. In some cases, the introduc+on of this, has been done with the coopera+on of the mining company.
  • 10. Ge^ng the message out • It is important to maintain and raise awareness of these issues. • Using a public relations company has bolstered the Association’s professional profile. • A growing media profile has contributed to the organisation’s ability to make a difference for AMRC members. • Locally relevant media release distribution. - delegates promote the issues in their areas. • A regularly updated website: h_p://www.miningrelatedcouncils.asn.au
