Marquart calls Wallarah decision 'environment crap'
Local ward representative Cr Troy Marquart has described as "environment crap" the decision by Central Coast Council to re-affirm its opposition to the Wallarah Two coal mine.
The council resolution was made as part of council debate on the water security of the Central Coast.
Cr Louise Greenaway said the mine would place additional pressure on the water catchment.
Cr Marquart called the council resolution "environment crap" after Cr Kyle MacGregor mentioned "flat-earthers" to his right.
Cr Marquart said: "Call me a flat-earther if you want. It doesn't matter. Wallarah Two will go ahead."
He said it was another bash-up on Wallarah Two with a Labor/Greens alliance deciding they didn't want the jobs on the Central Coast.
Cr Marquart said council should be talking about the ageing infrastructure that was losing water underground.
The council accepted Cr Greenaway's motion which included the request for a report to a Council meeting in April about the status of a water plan that staff were working on.
