New $6m Scone Equine Hospital To Proceed

Wednesday, 26th May 2010

Meanwhile plans for a $6 million state-of-the-art equine hospital in the heart of Scone "will proceed in the wake of the NSW Government's decision to block the proposed Bickham Coal Mine in the Upper Hunter," reported thoroughbrednews.com.au. Scone Equine Hospital director Angus Adkins (whose practice employs more than 100 people) confirmed: "Before the decision to block the Bickham mine, it was almost impossible for us to foresee the future growth of our practice. The importance of this decision cannot be underestimated. It has an immediate impact to both our practice & the region. We can now continue to grow alongside a healthy thoroughbred industry providing employment & investment in the Upper Hunter. . . . . This development will reinforce Scone's global position as the major equine centre for the Southern Hemisphere."
