About Us


The Southern Highlands Coal Action Group (SHCAG) was set up in 2010 by a small group of affected landowners & concerned residents to provide a voice for the community, access to relevant information, and to act as a liaison and coordination body for activities within our community and supporters – which of course includes liaison with both state & federal politicians, and regulatory bodies. 

Of late, providing support & assistance to landowners who are currently in negotiations and/or arbitration with Hume Coal (who hold the exploratory licences in the area) is also a large part of what SHCAG do.  These landowners have been forced into arbitration, and denied access to legal representation – let’s not forget that they are standing up for all our rights, you could be next …

The SHCAG Committee is supported by a group of dedicated local volunteers.
