Over the weekend we hit the milestone of 2000 signatures - have you signed? You’ll remember we are calling for a halt to development plans in the bushfire prone Perth Hills pending the outcome of the February 2021 Wooroloo Fires Inquiry...
Will you help us get to 3000 or more signatures before we submit the petition to the WA State Parliament??
Remember - the 9th of June is coming up and that’s when Satterley will be back at the State Administrative Tribunal making the case yet again for their refused structure plan. Secret discussions behind closed doors is no place for such an important decision that will;
affect the bushfire safety of thousands of people
impact hundreds of hectares of habitat and,
alter the very fabric of what makes the hills, the hills.
Stay tuned for important updates as we approach the next mediation hearing…
In the meantime, please support the amazing businesses who are hosting our petition signing efforts and if you haven’t signed, be sure to add your name and ask everyone you know to do the same. You’ll find our petition at:
- Maggie Thompson Naturopath
- Paul’s vege shop in Mt Helena
Oh and you'll also find us at the upcoming Gidgegannup Small Farm Field day on the 30th May!
Save Perth Hills
Save Perth Hills is a community organisation dedicated to preserving the unique environment, heritage and social structures of the Perth Hills. We are currently working towards better planning for the proposed North Stoneville development in Shire of Mundaring.
Enviro report update
Hey everyone - this Sunday the 30th May, Save Perth Hills will have a stall at the Gidgegannup Small Farm Field day. If you haven't signed our petition yet, this will be the last chance to do so before it is presented to parliament. Remember we are calling for a halt to development plans in the bushfire prone Perth Hills pending the outcome of the February 2021 Wooroloo Fires Inquiry... Remember too that there are several amazing hills businesses who have the petition for you to sign (see our previous post about this)
Look forward to seeing you on Sunday
Enviro report update on North Stoneville!
Our team has been staying on the case with the environmental report requirements around proposed North $toneville. The EPBC Canberra office has told Save Perth Hills that it requires more information from Satterley - apparently not satisfied with Satterley‘s initial response - which has taken the developer 7 months to compile and submit!
The massive environmental impact was one of the reasons WA's Planning Commission rejected North Stoneville in July last year, which Satterley is now appealing. Last October many of you provided formal submissions to the "EPBC" (Federal Enviro Protection Dept), outlining serious concerns about impacts to the 555 hectares of flora and fauna, including endangered species. The quality and intensity of public scrutiny is the reason $atterley has apparently been told to come back with a more appropriate response.
Our Save Perth Hills banners are out on the streets again to remind everyone that THIS IS NOT OVER YET. And thanks to YOU we're making great progress to expose the dangers and sheer inappropriateness of North Stoneville.
EVENTS - Community Update
The thoughts of Save Perth Hills are with everyone affected by the Perth Hills Bushfire (Feb 2021). Sadly it's shaping up to be the worst bushfire in living memory for our region.
