Thank you for your support of our events and the many consultation processes underway during 2023. It is very important that the community contributes to these and that we raise our voices for the protection of our natural heritage. If not us, then who?
In the Spring edition of the Urban Bush Telegraph we outline some of the advocacy campaigns that we have engaged in during 2023. You can also link to a new page on our website where we have developed mini guides to assist you to make your own submission. Check it out: Your Voice Needed Now on Key Issues. You can also catch up with news from Member Groups, read a summary from our Urban Forest Strategy panel discussion and much more. Find the Urban Bush Telegraph here CLIMATE CHANGE BILL
COMMENT ON EXPLANATORY PAPERThe State Government has committed to introducing climate change legislation and you can read their explanatory paper here.
Our changing climate has been of great concern for UBC and member groups and supporters. One of the biggest disappointments in the proposed bill is the delay by 20 years in reaching net zero emission targets – 2 decades later than the rest of the nation. Remind the WA State Government of their responsibilities. Join us on Monday 16th October for: Briefing and Q&A Session with Dept Water & Environmental Regulation (DWER) – 2pm – 2:30pm, and/or Submission tips from community conservation network (hosted by UBC) – 2:35pm-3:05pm Email [email protected] for the Zoom links.

CLOSES 18 OCTOBER You may be aware of this proposal area as ‘H2Perth’ – when Woodside Energy Technologies Pty Ltd proposed to construct and operate a domestic and export scale hydrogen and ammonia production facility, located approximately 40 km south of Perth in the Cities of Rockingham and Kwinana. In June 2023 UBC responded that ‘H2Perth’ should be assessed at the level of Public Environmental Review (PER) due to many things including its importance as ecological linkages and the presence of Tuarts.
The new ‘proponent’ is the State Government via DevelopmentWA and the proposal is for industrial lot subdivision. It is out for 7 days of public comment regarding whether it should be assessed. And if so, what level of assessment. We urge you to request a Public Environmental Review (PER) level of assessment.
UBC in most concerned that the proposal is relying on environmental information collected and analysed 14 years ago (fauna) and 25 years ago (flora and vegetation). UBC is also concerned about the clearing &/or disturbance of Threatened Ecological Communities (TECs), impacts on habitat for endangered fauna (and other fauna) and the removal of critical ecological linkages.
