More consultation on the Jerrabomberra wetlands

johnboy 7 August 2012 1

Chief Minister Gallagher has announced she’d like community feedback on a draft master plan for the Jerrabomberra wetlands:

“Jerrabomberra Wetlands is an important environment and recreational area that the ACT Government is keen to develop it into an iconic reserve, for the enjoyment of all Canberrans and also to attract interstate and overseas visitors,” the Chief Minister said.

“The draft master plan for Jerrabomberra Wetlands Nature Reserve offers a vision for the future development and restoration of this significant site, which will assist with the protection and enhancement of the wetlands’ environmental values while still providing leisure and education opportunities for the community.

“These wetlands have become a reserve of national and international significance and the master plan also aims to enhance conservation values of this species-rich urban environment.

“The ACT Government committed more than $2 million in the 2010-11 ACT Budget to deliver a master planning document for the wetlands, and to commence work on capital improvements,” the Chief Minister said.

A couple of wind turbines would set it off. Which raises a good point, how come our Labour/Green gummint don’t have any turbines ? There aren’t any in the ACT is there ? All along the Brindys would surely bring tears to them.
