Clearing Birrigan

Ed,

So, into the third week of clearing the above critical koala habitat and corridor, and augmentative habitat for the World Heritage Iluka Littoral Rainforest, and apart from Greg Clancy and Laura Black (thank you), no reply regards my request for stop works until stormwater management onsite and off, in Iluka, is upgraded and recallibrated to deal with the large water flows that will come off this site in the next heavy downpours.
Apart from lack of courtesy it would seem to indicate an evasive intention to fail to address valid questions and issues.
What happened to CVC’s new policy of openness, transparency and communication?
What I would also like answered is why this valuable habitat and corridor was ever granted to Birrigangargle Land Council in the first place when by law, land rights should not be granted to Aboriginal Land Councils when the lands or properties are intended for residential housing at a future stage.
That they were granted this land is fair enough, but why was it rezoned as residential in 2005, when as land granted to Birrigangargle Land Council through NSW Native Title or it’s equivalent, it should not have been rezoned for housing.
Come listen to the bulldozers and see the forest being ripped out tree by tree.
Care for Country and it will Care for You, isn’t that what they say?
Caring for Country?
I don’t think so.
Would someone please answer these questions?

Gabrielle Barto, Iluka
