Enough is Enough
Waiting... waiting... Our community has waited for a North Stoneville resolution for almost 30 years. Despite 3 decades, disastrous bushfires and consistent opposition to a plan that risks thousands of lives - we’re still waiting. But wait. We’ve been asked to wait - again... In the lead up to the hottest Christmas Day for more than half a century, more than 130 of you signed, or emailed, your support for a Save Perth Hills’ Christmas gift to Anglican Archbishop Kay Goldsworthy who has power to ‘STOP!’ the destructive townsite on her Anglican Stoneville land. Our gift, ‘The Possum Whisperer’, is a book by local resident Steve Quartly featuring encounters with wild possums on his Mundaring property. But, Anglican Trustees’ boss, Keith Stephens, told us we couldn’t see the Archbishop, so, we delivered the book, personally, to her office on Christmas Eve. Like us, it’s waiting for her. We included an invitation to come up to the Hills to meet the possums. While we wait to hear from the Archbishop, we also wait for the EXTENDED mediation on $atterley and the Church’s appeal against North Stoneville’s rejection by DFES, our Shire Councillors, WA’s Planning Commission, politicians from every side, and us, the Community. C’mon Kay - we’re not a desk-top exercise up here, we're a Community - at risk. We’d love to talk to you, if only you’d agree to talk to us! (Or, won’t Keith let you?) We invite you to share our New Year’s resolution: ‘Enough is Enough’ - and visit the Hills, to see for yourself the beauty of our possums’ environment, and the beast - that would become your North Stoneville. We eagerly await your response. Again.
