Premier Baird, you promised community consultation. Since your election, you have not stood by your promise to consult the broad community. Minister Pru Goward does not acknowledge the Dept of Planning’s failure to look at the broad issues of this development; the destruction of vital wetlands, koala habitat and corridor severely impacted; a sewage treatment plant that is inadequate, and a single lane road that is already in gridlock; and the impact on tourism that is worldwide. The rezoning was not appropriate for the land in context of its important place as a floodplain and wetlands, and was done to allow a big city player to intensively develop land that was rezoned by the State for his purposes to make big money. This is not democracy.
