New South Wales Independent Planning Commission, citing concerns about long-lasting environmental impacts that could hurt future generations, has blocked the development of South Korean electricity giant KEPCO owned coal mine Bylong Valley in NSW. The project was slated to produce 120 million tonnes of coal over the next 25 years.

The watchdog said that it was unfair for current generations to reap the benefits of a project that would leave the environmental costs to be borne by the future generations. The commission added that greenhouse gas aspects of the burning of coal remain problematic.
