I agree with Brenda, sad how councils say they care about the wildlife, but allow their habitat to be ripped down anyway. It will be a sad day when Australia no longer has any Koala's in the wild. Considering the Koala is the Qld animal emblem which was Officially proclaimed in 1971. Will need to change this when they are all gone. Really, more town houses?
Thank you for your comments and I will make sure any assessment of the development application takes them into full consideration.
This development application will undergo full assessment by Council before any decision is made. I have already spoken to staff about this site and will be fully briefed of progress and possible outcomes.
I would like to point out that this is privately owned land not public open space. On the issue on Council's commitment to both koalas and wildlife, there is approximately $5.6 million in the current financial year budget to be spent on environmental issues including monitoring and tagging of the koala population on the former Petrie Paper Mill site where the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) will be building its new campus. Just this morning I visited a site in Warner (John H Walker Reserve) where 6100 trees are being planted today. Approximately 50% of these trees are koala habitat trees.
I am more than happy to have a personal discussion with you about Council's approach to environmental issues if you so desire. Please contact my office on 3480 6869 if you wish to make a time to catch up.
Kind Regards, God Bless, Mike. ______________________________ Mike Charlton Deputy Mayor | Councillor for Division 9 Moreton Bay Regional Council 220 Gympie Road, STRATHPINE QLD 4500 PO Box 159, Caboolture 4510 P: (07) 3480 6869 | M: 0417 757 751 W: www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au<http://www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/>
