Public Perception Study Reveals Cumulative Impacts Still High on Community’s Radar
Posted on July 25th, 2014
The Moranbah Cumulative Impacts Group, which commissioned a study earlier this year into quality of life issues in Moranbah, has discussed the results of the study at its most recent meeting.
The study revealed that Moranbah residents are generally satisfied with their life in Moranbah, but are concerned about the cumulative impacts of development on their quality of life.
The study was conducted using a random telephone poll of Moranbah residents to gauge the community’s perceptions about cumulative impacts.
The study found that residents want economic growth and prosperity whilst still ensuring environmental standards are maintained. Many residents are keen to know more about the cumulative impacts of development, through a range of media.
The MCIG reviewed the results of the study at its most recent meeting in Moranbah and the group is currently considering the findings.
