OUR STATE GOVERNMENT IS COMMENCING THE GREATEST LEVEL OF ENVIRONMENTAL DESTRUCTION OUR MARINE PARK HAS EVER SEEN
The destruction of our coastal environment and reclamation of the ocean for a marina development and housing estate is a gross violation of the community’s trust and unacceptable in today’s climate. It’s hugely disappointing that our current State Government, who claim to support actions to reduce climate change and protect our environment, has ignored hundreds of appeals to the recent decision for land clearing for the marina’s 2km breakwater, and confirmed its position being development at any cost.
What was an expectation of an upgrade to the existing boat launching facility has turned into an oversized marina and 1000+ high density housing development at the expense of the coastal playground we love:
- Beautiful sandy beaches and surf breaks.
- Rich abalone reef and marine life.
- Gallery of limestone cliffs.
- Coastal bushland and shared path.
WE REQUEST THE STATE GOVERNMENT IMMEDIATELY HALT ALL WORKS AND ENGAGE WITH THE COMMUNITY IN A CONSTRUCTIVE MANNER TO DEVELOP A SOLUTION ACCEPTABLE TO ALL
