The document “The Ongoing Decline of the Peel-Harvey Estuary” is a sad reflection of our poor stewardship of this iconic area.
You may be moved to send your comments to one or more of the people listed in this document. If enough of us tell them it is too dangerous to approve, perhaps we will be heard.
Since being drawn to Mandurah nearly 17 yrs ago, because of it’s lovely balance of a rural setting & a peaceful resort, I have seen it slowly descend into a cross between a boating playground for the rich & a wannabe yuppie village.
It seems to be that if a developer throws enough carrots out they can get approval.
The trouble is that the residents of this lovely place always seem to pay the price for someone else’s nature. I fully respect David Templemans efforts to stop the concrete development madness that seems to have gripped Mandurah.
The native wildlife I guess would love all this if they could drive a boat or live in a high rise appartment, but their needs are simple some bushland & trees, perhaps we should teach them the concept of money as it seems this will be the only way they can fight back.
