Hartfield Park clearing update

by NRPG 14/12/2012 8:13:00 AM

As you may have seen NRPG wrote a letter to the Officer of the Appeals Convenor regarding the clearing of a bush forever site at Hartfield Park for a sportsground.  We were gratified with the response from them which overturned the Shire's decision.  However that joy was shortlived - the Minister for the Environment has since overturned that decision!  Both letters are attached.

We now have to decide whether to proceed further with this matter by perhaps invoking the EPBC Act.  We will keep you informed.

For reference I have also attached the clearing permit which shows a map of the proposed area to be cleared and background information including the fact that the clearing is NOT supported by the WAPC (bottom of page 2).
