NSW Treasurer Mike Baird will today visit Dubbo to address the local community and hear their views on the future of the Cobbora Coal Mine Development, the Member for Dubbo Troy Grant said.

"Mr Baird will be able to explain in some detail the long-term benefits of the Cobbora Coal Mine and issues related to its development,” Mr Grant said.

“Mr Baird has welcomed the opportunity to address the local community and talk though some of these issues and any concerns the community may have in relation to the development.”

“Whilst the decision to develop the Cobbora mine is not straight forward, Mr Baird has made clear that it remains a priority for the Government unless and until a superior alternative is established."

"Mr Baird has also reiterated that the mine’s planning and approvals process for its development remains on track."
