Mayor meets with Coordinator General over LNG project

THE State Coordinator General has seemingly offered a peace pipe to the Gladstone Regional Council, although it remains a symbolic gesture.

Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers said she had met with the Coordinator General on Tuesday to outline the region's concerns about the Arrow LNG project, which the council says were ignored as part of the supplementary environmental impact statement process.

The council is hoping that the office can learn from the experience Gladstone has gone through with three previous projects.

"We had a good discussion around the fact that we're actually the people who live in the Gladstone region," Cr Sellers said.

"So we know that these things are the things we need to happen."

Three senior staff members were in attendance with the Coordinator General.

Cr Sellers said she was pleasantly surprised by the Coordinator General's level of engagement and that she had been assured they'd get back to them on a range of issues.
