Carmel Crossley  Believes that Council’s role is limited to advising State government and Kalbar of community concerns. Believes the EES must consider a range of factors including dust, noise, radiation , water, etc. Believes that if commercialisation of the deposit occurs it should not be at the expense of the local community.
