     Is farming still viable, should we be planning for more farmland? Should we be trying to grow, buy and find local markets for local food?

    I have lived in the beautiful green and serene Kin Kin 10 years ago and we chose this beautiful part of the world because of it's peace and serenity.  If a MEGA quarry starts this will be lost forever, the environment will be destroyed, the noise and air pollution will be ruined.  When we bought here no rural quarry came up in the searches and people who purchased properties 2 years ago a MEGA quarry never came up in the searches.  The Noosa Hinterland does not need a MEGA quarry as the Noosa Hinterland is a great tourist destination.  Another reason it doesn't need a quarry is because the cost of the maintenance of the roads will cost more than the quarry operator's profits but the tax payer has to pay for it not the quarry operator.
