Yme fights for local creek
THE protection and rehabilitation of Bundamba Creek, a major natural asset for the Ipswich community, is a cause independent candidate for Division 4 Yme Tulleners will fight for.
With council's recently released Bundamba Creek Corridor Plan, Mr Tulleners said council should ensure it was protected.
"It's important to manage development along the creek so we get the best outcome for the community and the environment."
A large part of the creek's upper catchment is in the Ripley Valley which will see urban development.
"Now is the time to get the planning right," Mr Tulleners said.
"The Bundamba Creek Corridor Plan (includes) provision of a buffer zone around the creek, flood management, wetland rehabilitation and walking and cycling opportunities along the creek. I will push to have (it) implemented."
