Development must be stopped

I REFER to the residents of Bellbird Park and their fight against the destruction of a big bush block at Eugene St.

A business, CB CB Developments Pty Ltd, sees a nice little earner.

It wants to clear the lot and put 300-plus houses on it. It is zoned low density which CB must have missed.

It submitted a high-density plan and the application to the council was rejected.

We now await its appeal to the planning and environment court. It would save a lot of our time and their money if CB just packed up and left. This block must be retained at all costs.

It is full of dozens of bird species, including the vulnerable powerful owl, but also koalas and even platypus. It also has rare eucalypts.

The block is steep and close to the wildlife corridor along the Woogaroo Creek. Seventy-plus locals sent objections to this development. We hope the court and CB CB Developments Pty Ltd do the right thing.
