A NEW committee against the proposed Queensland-Hunter gas pipeline is set to be formed, after more than 100 people attended a protest meeting in Quirindi.
People from as far away as Garah, Coonamble and Stanhope turned out to Saturday's meeting, to express their objections to the project, which was first approved in 2009.
Many of the landholders in attendance vowed to continue the fight against the project, amidst fear it will impact on water supplies.
Breeza farmer Peter Wills said a "really positive feeling" came out of the event.
"During the meeting, Simon Fagan from Coonamble spoke about how his community halted the progression of the proposed Western Slopes pipeline," Mr Wills said.
"Also, Peter Martin from the Southern Highlands described how his community stopped a proposed coal mine.
"From those examples, we took a lot of confidence that if we show unity as a community and stick together, we too can stop this project."
Mr Wills said the need to form a committee was paramount to continuing the fight against the project.
"Because this project is so far reaching, it's vitally important for everyone who could be impacted to have a say," Mr Wills said.
"From Saturday's meeting, we have established a need to form a community group or committee to continue progressing our concerns.
"By doing that we can hopefully get answers to the questions the company, so far, hasn't answered."
Queensland-Hunter gas pipeline managing director Garbis Simonian said he was available to answer any landholder's queries regarding the project.
"We are getting enquiries from people all the time and we are always happy to field their questions, provided they are a landholder who is involved in the project," Mr Simonian said.
"If any landholder has questions they can get in touch with us, quote their lot number and we will be more than happy to address their issues."
The concerned stakeholders will now turn their attention to a similar meeting, which has been set down for early March in Singleton.
Mr Simonian said he would be open to attending the meeting.
"I don't see any reason why not," he said.
"If I have enough notice and my schedule permits, I'd be open to coming along."
