How to make a submission
Copy our submission or write one of your own
We can stop North Stoneville with your help.
The WA Department of Planning have opened community submissions. We need as many of you as possible to voice your opposition by writing a short submission on the Planning Department website.
It only takes a few minutes.
Here's what you need to do:
Option 1: Use our pre-written submission
Copy the example submission below.
Use as is or change it to include your own words.
Option 2: Write your own
Start with the sentence "I'm totally opposed to the amended plan for North Stoneville. Reference number DR 189/2020". This is important, so that your voice is not counted as simple commentary.
Your personal experiences are vital. Help the WA Planning Department understand what it is like living in an extreme bushfire zone such as the Perth Hills.
Once you've written it, go to the WA Planning Department's consultation hub and make your submission.
It will only take a few minutes online. There is an option to post if you prefer.
Consultation closes on May 8 2023.

I am writing to express my strong opposition to the proposed North Stoneville development - Reference number DR 189/2020. The project poses a significant threat to the environment and wildlife in the Perth Hills region. The development will result in the destruction of 50,000 trees and 160 hectares of land, including the habitat of the endangered black cockatoos. This loss of habitat will have a significant impact on the local ecosystem and wildlife.
Moreover, the proposed development does not appear to have taken into account the ecological significance of the area. The Perth Hills are an important region for biodiversity and conservation, and any development should be undertaken with the utmost care to protect these natural resources.
I strongly urge you to reconsider the proposed development and instead explore alternative options that prioritize the protection of the environment and wildlife.
