Neigbours buy ex-mine land

Land which once served as Solid Energy’s Huntly East Mine has been snapped up by the neighbours.

New owners Murray and Jennifer Allen have bordered the 112-hectare plot for over 30 years.

Historically, the ex-coal mining land was a lake and the Allens have been looking forward to seeing the lake restored since the day they moved in.
