SAVING OUR COUNTRY PARKS, ONE STEP AT A TIME
We had such a packed campaign that I'm going to summarise it here as a list of dates so as to show the fast pace and sheer scale of our activities.
The first is a proposal to build an artificial island by reclaiming 1,700 hectares of land. The project is hugely costly, endangers marine life and fisheries and will take too long to solve the housing issue. It's a non-starter.
It just doesn't make sense when there are more than 700 hectares of brownfield sites that are just going to waste.
There will be lots to do in the coming year to put pressure on the government to listen to the people. This campaign is not over and we will continue to build on the momentum we have won this year and carry on fighting and save our country parks. We know we can do it, with you by our side.
