The Surat Basin is a region comprising established and strong communities supported by a robust and productive agricultural economy. Significant growth is being experienced in the region due to mining and extraction of extensive deposits of thermal coal and coal seam gas (CSG). The Queensland Government has had a unique opportunity to anticipate and prepare for this growth and the Surat Basin Future Directions Statement (the Statement) is the foundation of this preparation.
This final report on the Statement is an opportunity to detail the work accomplished through a partnership of the Queensland, federal and local governments, regional industry participants and members of the local community.
