“Watching the power of our coastal communities come together to voice their disapproval has been simply amazing, this is the true meaning of people power”
From Surfrider Foundation Australia:
We’ve done it, we STOPPED PEP11!! The tireless work from our coastal communities has finally paid off, with the government announcing this week that due to the high level of community opposition, they have decided to refuse the application to renew the PEP11 permit.
So, to every single one of you who stood up in opposition to this project, whether at a paddle out, writing letters to your MP, posting on socials or signing petitions, this win is yours! We had a historic win in our #fightforthebight back in 2019 thanks to all of you and now we’ve #STOPPEDPEP11. Watching the power of our coastal communities come together to voice their disapproval has been simply amazing, this is the true meaning of people power.
We have to give a special thanks to our friends over at Save Our Coast, Surfers For Climate and Living Ocean, who were all instrumental in this incredible grassroots campaign. We are proud to have worked alongside these organisations and help to provide a historic win for all ocean lovers and provide future generations a chance to enjoy one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world.
Soak in this incredible news my friends, we are making a huge difference protecting what we all love so much.

A petition protesting the development has garnered 60,000 signatures and was delivered to parliament last year by independent MP Zali Steggall, who holds the NSW Warringah electorate.
Steggall told Energy News she welcomed today’s announcement.
“The coastal communities have worked hard to keep this on the agenda, and they have prevailed,” she said.
“This win will protect our coastline from oil and gas drilling – including the wildlife, beaches and surf breaks it would endanger.”
