Pub Test #1
PUB TEST #1 of 4 We're back at the pub to ask what you think about the recent work of $atterley and the Anglican church... $atterley VS Our Environment
Tonight, we're bringing you the first of 4 Pub Tests into the firetrap North $toneville plan for 4,000 people in an internationally recognised bio-diverse region.
You might remember, SPH and Mundaring Council presented to WA’s Planning Commission in June, to re-zone North Stoneville from URBAN to a safer RURAL zone (that case continues). Under Freedom of Info, we got $atterley’s arguments AGAINST the Rural re-zone. There are 4 points in their deputation which had us wondering - does this pass the pub test? Some bits got blanked out (‘confidential’ to $atterley’s SAT appeal, apparently). But this bit, under “Environmental Considerations” caught our eye. $atterley says it’s OK to bulldoze more than 200 hectares of forest and bushland - because there’s so much around!! That’s more than half the size of Kings Park that $atterley reckons is fine to flatten!
We thought the Hills are the Hills - BECAUSE of the environment!! What do YOU think? Does this pass the Pub Test? Tell us what you reckon in the comments below! (Keep em respectful folks).
Federal approval (known as the EPBC), still has NOT been granted for this enormous environmental destruction. Our Federal Member for Hasluck, Ken Wyatt is closely monitoring this for us.
We’ll post the entire $atterley report, (as we received it!), on our website soon.
This is just the beginning - wait till you see Pub Test #2... Jessica Shaw MLA, Matt Swinbourn MLC, Matthew Hughes Member for Kalamunda, Amber-Jade Sanderson, Sussan Ley MP
