Snowy 2.0 gets Federal approval
Australia’s largest ever renewable energy project, Snowy 2.0, has been given the green light to create thousands of new jobs and put downward pressure on electricity prices.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced that Commonwealth environmental approval for the project has been granted after a rigorous environmental process.

”This marks the final step in the planning and approvals phase and the beginning of a new wave of jobs and investment for the region, which will guarantee clean, affordable energy and position our country for the future,” the Prime Minister said.

”Just as the original Snowy Hydro project brought jobs and prosperity to Australia after the Second World War, Snowy 2.0 will help Australia grow its way out of the economic challenges from the coronavirus.

“Already Snowy 2.0 is creating a jobs boom, with over 100 local businesses benefiting from the Government’s investment to date, with much more local investment to come.”

Over the life of the project Snowy 2.0 will create 4,000 direct jobs, as well as many more indirect jobs as flow-on benefits are realised by local businesses and the broader region.

Minister for the Environment Sussan Ley said the rigorous environmental assessment underlined the importance of the bilateral assessment with NSW.

“Not only has the approval paved the way for critical infrastructure that will help the environment, it has ensured vital funding for protecting the area’s biodiversity,” Minister Ley said.

“The final Commonwealth review resulted in additional conditions around heritage, public transparency on data used to underpin mitigation strategies and the protection of native fish species.

“The approval process ensures the development is built and operated in a way that sensitively avoids, mitigates and rehabilitates environmental impacts while protecting the environment and its rich biodiversity as we move to a clean energy future.”

As part of the approval, Snowy Hydro will invest almost $100 million in biodiversity and environmental enhancements, including establishing an offset fund of up to $73.8m through the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service to protect threatened species and deliver long-term conservation outcomes.

Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction Angus Taylor said Snowy Hydro 2.0 is a vital project for the National Electricity Market.

“Snowy 2.0 will provide an additional 2,000 megawatts of fast-start, dispatchable energy and provide 350,000 megawatt hours of large-scale storage, enough to power the equivalent of 500,000 homes for over a week during peak demand,” Minister Taylor said.

“It will reduce volatility in the market, support reliability and bring down power prices for Australian families and businesses.

“Snowy 2.0 is a key part of the Government’s agenda to deliver affordable, reliable power and ensure Australians get a fair deal on energy.”

More information about Snowy 2.0 is online at snowyhydro.com.au/our-scheme/snowy20.

If the seasons stay dry and drought conditions were is the water coming from for this project and how much is this going to reduce power costs or is this all based on what Angus Taylor is saying just remember he is the one that was telling lies about the Sydney Lord Mayor travel expenses so that might happen again on this project regarding the costs

Not that I'm there anymore but would be great to see Cooma thriving again. Had to walk on side of road sometimes(not enough room on pavement)in Sharp St when I first went to Cooma😀

Now it's 4000 jobs? It was only 2000 a few weeks ago.

Just so long as they dont sell it to china, or any other country!

The question on everyone's lips!

The snowy brought land in polo flat, some for ridiculous amounts and everyone else’s rates go up. Go figure !

There needs to be an administrator put in to manage this council what do they think that people have money trees growing in their back yard if this council can’t manage a budget then it’s time for them to go the can’t afford to keep on paying higher rates just for council staff to be given free cars etc

Same in bombala, we believe that because the shires have amalgamated that average land prices now includes jindabyne and Cooma land prices. Bloody wrong. I'm sure land prices in bombala haven't increased between 40 and 60 %.

You would think after the bushfires and COVID the council would be trying to look after our hard working local business’s but of course not.. totally disgusting!

One block 182% increase which equates to 88% rise in rates

This is a plot to stop new industries coming to Cooma. The king of Cooma won't be out shined by new KINGS OF INDUSTRY

Every other organisation is in tune with what is going on with corona virus and these bloody idiots are putting the rates up time to split the councils back the way they were like i have remarked before

Why have they increased so much?

AROUND THE GROUNDS BACK IN 1995

Wins across the district in rugby league junior and senior grades, representative sportsman, aspiring athletes and more in this week’s sport, 1995.
Against heavyweights the Bega Roosters, Stallions first grade won 28-14 on the back of the strength of their forwards and speed of their backs, scoring 10 unanswered points after half time to win the match. Dean Saddler scored two tries, including a 70-metre effort in the first half as he shot through the defensive line to score an amazing individual try.
Bega were still behind at half time with the score at 18-14 to Cooma, but a second try from Saddler and a late Simon Rees four- pointer sealed the deal for the hosts. Reserves won 28-4, with the reliable trio of Ian Arnold, Steve Hamilton and Marcus Caldwell getting the team across the line. Under 18s, spurred by Sam Sten, Mark Kaufline and Troy Constance had a terrific win despite injuries to some of their key players
to beat Bega 14-6. All three of these teams were then on top of the ladder. To add to this, Cooma’s Under 12s, 14s and 16s all had wins.

Comment on Facebook SEASON ON! Rapid ...

What about keeping the locals safe. We didn't get a choice about the ski season opening. Now we have to be extra careful when going to woolies as these tourists come in. ALL for the sake of making money for the resorts. We r still in drought and have been forgotten. We have more important things to worry about.

I seriously hope that the accommodation services have the following hand sanitizer in every room, hall, etc Antibacterial hand wash Glen 20 spray A day break between guests per room if a motel etc Cleaning staff spraying & wiping down constantly each seat, table, door handle Light switch!! Or at least 2-3 days break if a holiday home ( like mine ) Everyone please speak up if your see someone not doing the right thing

No hospital in the snowy monaro is set up for covid patients. And ACT wont either intake patients from NSW. Good luck.

Skii season goes ahead, at risk of the large amount of residents being of retirement age. But its just to good for business right, im sure the American owned skii fields would be cheering.

Only if they get tested. Sorry but most people won't want to be tested. We are about to end up like Melbourne. Selfish people

From what I heard today, they aren't managing social distancing too well

Blah blah what about keeping the locals safe what a load of crap. Don’t go out if your in the danger zone it’s simple. Can’t live your life on fear what about if your driving your car and die or your business can’t feed your kids all just as bad as covid

Scarey times we are so close to Victoria’s boarder less restrictions here - stay safe

The skiiers and boarders etc wont get tested. It will ruin their holiday

Very sad to read these nasty comments on the post ....😢😢😢

They should stay in there cities and not here

John Barillaro only chases the almighty $$$$ ski season, brumbies etc he only a stupid mouth piece

Well John Barilaro, let's hope our covid free zone stays that way now outsiders are allowed in. Agree with another comment all for the almighty dollar ......

JINDABYNE SEES SPIKE IN SEASONAL RENTAL NEEDS

The past weeks have seen many people from all around the country and world taking to social media sites in search for a home during the 2020 winter season.
Though the current COVID-19 pandemic has not completely shut down the mountains this snow season the resorts have put many safety procedures in place to open their mountain to limited numbers.
This in turn is bringing many past and new ski and snowboard enthusiasts to the area in search of employment, with many already having secured jobs with the resorts.
Kosciuszko Thredbo has followed NSW Government guidelines on COVID-19 shared housing policies and has limited shared staff accommodation availability where they are allocated at the discretion of the management team.
All staff accommodation will be governed by the ‘Terms and Conditions of Staff Accommodation’, which all staff need to acknowledge and sign before being formally accepted at check in.

DROUGHT RESPONSE CO-ORDINATOR VISITS MONARO

Co-ordinator General for the

National Drought and North Queensland Flood Response and Recovery Agency Shane Stone visited our region last Tuesday, meeting with local farmers, contractors and agronomists to discuss current farming conditions and drought measures available at the present time.

The aim of the meeting was to streamline drought funding and the processes of obtaining it, as well as discussing issues specific to the Monaro and its range of employees in the agricultural sector. This information as well as information obtained in other regions visited by the team will be relayed back to Prime Minister Scott Morrison as feedback for future decisions and allocations of funding. Alongside Mr Stone was local Recovery Officer Chris Clark, and Policy Officer Clare D’Arcy. Issues addressed by locals included the long-term process of acquiring funding and the amount of time it takes to complete forms and other paperwork, whilst running their business at the same time. Currently there are 24 different drought relief measures available, and eligible farmers were encouraged by Mr Stone to use Rural Financial Counselling Services and other similar agencies to help access funding. One particularly problematic drought relief scheme for locals has been the NSW Rural Assistance Authority’s Emergency Water Infrastructure Rebate Scheme. With more struggles with water than any drought in recent memory, this scheme was not able to assist all eligible applicants, as it ran out of its allocated funding early and was closed May 14.

Mayor Beer discussed some of the problems concerning road safety, one of which was the lack of footpaths when disabled people using wheelchairs or parents

SNOWY ASSURANCES ON HEAVY TRAFFIC THROUGH COOMA

Snowy Hydro and the Cooma Chamber of Commerce held an online Zoom meeting on Wednesday June 18 in which Snowy Hydro made a detailed presentation, eager to set the record straight on a number of traffic related concerns around Snowy 2.0.
Snowy 2.0 Project Director Kieran Cusack, Relations Manager Dean Lynch, Senior Executive Gabriel Curtin and Snowy Project Director Paul Smith were on hand to provide updates and answer questions.
“It’s important that we have a strong, well informed chamber and we want everyone to be comfortable that they know the facts,” Dean Lynch said.
“There’s been a lot of myths floating around town on what’s going on with the traffic, and we want to make sure that this is a bit of a myth-busting session.”
One key talking point was the number of Heavy Vehicle (HV) movements coming from the Polo Flat concrete segment factory. Snowy Project Director Paul Smith explained the peak period of traffic would be early on in the five to six- year project and would diminish over time.

COUNCIL RATES TO INCREASE BY 2.6 PERCENT

Snowy Monaro Regional Council has introduced a rate increase of 2.6 percent for the upcoming financial year.
Councillors adopted the Operational Plan and Schedule of Fees and Charges for 2021 in the ordinary council meeting last week.
Councillor John Rooney moved the motion to increase the rate to the maximum rate peg of 2.6 percent, set by the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART).
“The rate peg of 2.6 percent is less than half a percent higher than the rate of inflation,” said Cr Rooney.
“Council is running at a $6 million deficit. There are never ideal circumstances and we have to bear in mind that if we freeze our
revenues, we’re not freezing our expenses, and wages are rising faster than 2.6 percent. All of our costs of operating this council increase and generally they increase past the rate of inflation and if we do not keep pace with inflation we will have no option but continue to wind back the level of service that we provide to ratepayers in our community."

Impeccable timing! I'm still trying to work out what we get for our money now. We get charged a waste management fee and still pay when we get to the tip. No road side service here.

I just wish the council would work for its money....some places are an absolute disgrace...

Water rates doubled land values jumped up a lot then 2.9% on top of that has the council done such a great job???? Council top heavy

More thievery from an unconstitutionally illegal bunch of criminals, who have no rights to charge anyone for anything

Rates should be collected by the state government and distributed to local councils in fixed even proportion. So the wealthiest areas get and pay at the same rate.

Believe it or not, the monaro area has to pay around $500 a year more in council rates than other big regional cities despite property in those cities being worth more than double. Its an absolute disgrace.

Rates have increased enormously in the last 14 years, from just over $1000 per year to over $2500 per year and have reduced/removed services during that time! Can anyone explain why this is many times more than CPI increases?

The ACT have reduced the rates due to Corona virus. So what does this Monaro Council do ?? Put the bloody rates up. What the hell. This is Bullshit.

FOR GOODNESS SAKE HOW ARE WE ALL GOING TO EXIST STOP ALL THIS STUPID SPENDING WE ALL ONLY HAVE ONLY CERTAIN AMOUNT OF WAGES AND PENSIONS !!!!

We own property in Perth 15 minutes from the city and also at Nimmitabel .. rates for Nimmitabel higher

Thinks it time for an outside audit and some job cuts especially from the higher levels of council.

Our rates are double the price of other places and I don't understand why? And now we will have to pay more. This is absurd!

Not the fault of us rate payers your $6 million in trouble, too many managers!!

It’s time Bombala said Goodbye to this shambles

Council was in the black before merging!

I don’t see how our rates can go up that much when the only service we get is bin collection. If there wages have increased that much, how do you get a job in council.

Moniqui Mc

Manage it better maybe

Stop wasting money on crap and we would be fine. Cooma council is a joke

Why

Why does the ratepayer have to pay for a rate increase when the council has got themselves into debt. Cr. Rooney you are gone next election mate voting and passing it. There needs to be some stuff love here.Get rid of some staff and stop wasting money.

I read they got $25mil for Cooma/Braidwood road upgrades twice Still can't even drive on it.

SNOWY 2.0 "ALL ABOUT JOBS" - PM

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Energy Minister Angus Taylor were in Cooma last Friday to inspect work on the Snowy 2.0 concrete segment factory construction at Polo Flat.
They were accompanied by Liberal candidate for the Eden- Monaro by-election, Fiona Kotvojs.
Mr Morrison and Mr Taylor emphasised the Snowy 2.0 project was all about creating jobs as it also acted as a giant power storage for the country.
While Mr Morrison’s visit didn’t include a formal announcement that the Federal Government had given the project its final approval, he said “We’ve got some decisions which are pending right now and they’re not too far away."

What Angus Taylor forgets to mention is that the costs has blown out and it’s only just getting started originally 2billion dollars but more than likely 20 billion or more by the time it’s finished and do very little to lower power prices but Angus seems to have a problem with the truth

How dare you build over a sacred site, where the tragic death of 4 people happened when VH-SMB crashed on May 20th 1976. It’s disgraceful and disrespectful to the relatives of all of the victims and first responders on that day. Surely the Polo Flat site was vast enough to allow that space to be left undisturbed? The Snowy Mountains Authority/SMEC should hang their heads in shame for allowing this to happen.

How about we look at the positive side of things , there will be jobs for people in the Monaro

Wow, that's quick! I wish I could get a builder in Cooma to work that fast!!

How everything changes! But oh how dry it is for you folk on Monaro, looks so bad. Pray you get rain.

Bring it on, good for business here...

Ryan Perry yes your famous and doing a great job,I'm very proud of you my son.x

Welcome to the future of earth no land just a concrete jungle with cloned animals.

JOURNEY FROM NIMMITABEL TO BOMBALA

Former Bombala local, Dennis Peadon whiled away some time over the June Long Weekend by running the railway line from Nimmitabel to Bombala, a distance of 63kms.
While the running was interspersed with jogging, walking,
stumbling through vegetation and scaling or crawling through fences, Denis completed the jaunt in just over 12 hours.
He started in Nimmitabel in the frosty dawn, with the temperature at -8, but was able to shed layers of clothing along the way.
This may not have been the best idea, as when he reached Bombala in the dark at 7pm, attired in shorts and t-shirt, he found it quite fresh to say the least!

I wish they would re install the line.

Now let us do it on bikes or horses.

STALLIONS 1994 WIN UNDER CAPTAIN-COACH NEIL HENRY

Preview: After clinching a win against Merimbula in the preliminary final, the Cooma Stallions had the chance to take home the silverware of the Carlton 1994 Group 16 Rugby League Premiership against the Bega Roosters at the Bega Recreation Ground.
Centre Mick Hamilton recalls excitement before the game within the team and himself.
“We had a good all-round football side under Neil Henry,” says Mick, who was also well aware of the challenges Bega would pose.
“We knew we were up for a big game of football, they’ve always been a hard side to beat”. With Reserves winning 30-10 against
Eden earlier, the Firsts took the field with the hope of winning both senior grade grand finals.

DONATION TO RFS GROUPS

The Coolamatong Snowy Mountains Golf and Country Club has recently assisted four local RFS crews in their local area by purchasing and distributing 10 hand-held radios to be used in future operations. The brigades that have benefitted are Berridale, Avington Park, Gully’s Road and Ingebirah, with these devices allowing them to have correspondence with fellow crew members from outside their trucks.
This project was able to eventuate thanks to a range of local sponsors who committed a combined total $5,400 to the clubs planned RFS Charity Day in April, which has been rescheduled to later this year due to COVID-19.
With the sponsors funding being released early, the Club will be able to add to this tally for the RFS through the competition fees when they hold the event.

During his time on the Monaro he was involved in a range of community projects, such as being project manager for the Bombala Bicentennial Gardens in 1988, planting trees and forming trails to create what has become a centrepiece of the town.
