is it time for ministerial intervention?

Earlier this week a group of community members and councillors met on the logging site at 565 Thonemans Rd, Hoddles Creek.

It was a sad affair, so much to lose and so little to gain from the clearfelling this 99 hectares of pristine forest.

Is it time to seek ministerial intervention? If you are concerned about VCATs determination, then write to your local member, write to the Ministers and the Premier too, it is time that the Labour Government really understood how our community feels when our local planning policies are completely ignored and loggers get the go ahead to clearfell land with significant environmental values.
