Satterley will be conducting "A Sense of Stoneville" - Part 2 community session in early May and a number of you have let us know. The invite comes with some decent marketing spin. Here at Save Perth Hills we know hills folk are not easily fooled - no matter which way you spin it, urban sprawl is urban sprawl.

So here's our glossy depiction of their glossy depiction...

And a couple of observations:

• Can the Shire of Mundaring vote on SP34 if Satterley are still seeking community input? The email from Satterley states: "Through this second ‘A Sense of Stoneville’ session, we want to better understand your feelings, viewpoints and ideas on the proposed development as a key and active community member in the Shire of Mundaring." Does this mean that Satterley will alter the plan or is the session a waste of everyone'

s time? #confused

• Why does Satterley insist on using photos that stretch the truth.... the railway heritage trails are some distance from the proposed North Stoneville site. People won't be able to access those from their front door... and Kookaburras are not native to WA. They steal the eggs of native birds. At least the ocean view picture is no longer in use. #facepalm

• Why is Satterley asking us to "Make Sense of Stoneville". This makes "No Sense". People in the community made sense of Stoneville a long time ago and if you want to know what the community thinks, it's "NO NIGEL NO!" Check out the evidence and the turnout from our Community Rally on the 7th April. Over 1000 community members plus these good people were there: Matthew Hughes Member for Kalamunda, Ken Wyatt, Tim Clifford, Greens MLC for East Metro, Lee-Anne Miles, Greens candidate for Hasluck, James Martin for Hasluck

FYI Rita Saffioti MLA, Mark McGowan

Simon Cherriman, who spoke so emotively at our rally, is a well-known bird expert from the Perth Hills and currently writing his PhD on Wedge-tailed Eagles.

In this video, Simon speaks about our local Black Cockatoos, their protection and conservation status, and how clearing for developments like North Stoneville threatens their future.

An application has been made to rezone MORE land to URBAN in Parkerville under the Metropolitan Regional Scheme - This is your chance to make a public submission before 3 May 2019. Don't put it off - use the Submission Link now to submit to the WAPC.

The land between our little townsites, like the old Parkerville Farm at risk in this application, is meant to remain rural (In the current Mundaring Planning Scheme 4) so as to prevent continuous urban sprawl in our beautiful hills.

If this application goes ahead, with the existing North Stoneville Plans and now the proposed Parkerville Urban Expansion, there will be nothing more than one row of rural blocks between these townsites. This kind of erosion of the planning intent for the hills will set bad precedent and destroy the rural character which we all know and love - so get to work and make a submission!!


Put your 'planning matters caps' back on to write a good submission... This submission is to the Western Australian Planning Comission (WAPC)

- Environment (this site abuts Clutterbuck Creek in the Jane Brook Catchment), noise, light, vehicle pollution, tree clearing, wildlife).

- Bushfire (additional population on existing roads)

- Social (Views, amenity, cultural, economic eg tourism)

- Infrastructure or lack of - shops, roads, medical etc

- Planning scheme intent to keep rural buffers around townsites in the Mundaring Shire

- Traffic Impacts

- Vision of the Mundaring 2026 Plan 'A sense of Place, A sense of Space'
