The Logging Application

First council meeting for 2006 saw councillors consider a logging application in Hoddles Creek. The application was to log 99 hectares of native vegetation in an area where flora and fauna is rare and endangered. Council voted unanimously against the application to a standing ovation in the public gallery. I knew at that point I was making a difference in our local community and heading in the right direction.

The applicant is appealing a "failure to determine" at VCAT and the first day of the hearing is set down for 5th June, 2006 - World Environment Day. I couldn't think of a better way to spend World Environment Day than by making sure I attend the hearing as a show of support to our community and to fly the flag for the environment.
