Letters re site details
Kabi Applicant and Env. Dept. (DES)
accuse us of getting things wrong.
Yet we are delivering information EXACTLY as provided by DES!
It is the project managers that are misinforming the public by failing to make transparent, accurate disclosure of key details.
When we formally query this situation DES attack our presentation integrity rather than address the plainly evident issue.

Minister's reply to Parliamentary Petition
fails to address petition content
The submitted petition specifically objected to private development leases and private accommodation within National Parks.
The Minister's reply completely avoided this core matter.
The Minister's reply asserts that these developments are sound and beneficial because of allegedly high worldwide uptake of such development. Eco-tourism expert Ralph Buckley (see article linked above) identifies that such development is almost always located outside of public areas of high conservation value and that standard must be maintained.
The Minister's written reasons for supporting the proposal rely heavily upon ignoring the crucial question of locating private leasing and development inside of National Parks.
This failure to respond accurately is an extension of the State Government's initial and ongoing failure to consult with the public on this utterly crucial matter of private development in National Parks.
This unpopular change is possible only because of Newman Govt. changes to the Nature Conservation Act. Instead of repealing these changes, as it promised to do when campaigning to remove the Newman Govt., the ALP Govt. is choosing to consolidate that change by stealth and diligent avoidance of public concern.
Your help is sought to make the Govt. properly consult with the public on their proposals to wreak irreversible change to the purpose and use of our National Parks.
