Planned Suburb of Throsby


Most of you will have heard about the proposed suburb of Throsby, which will (if built) be adjacent to Mulligans Flat and Goorooyarroo nature reserves and the Mulligans Flat Sanctuary.

The Bush on the Boundary Group has been active in informing government officers of the issues that this will raise for conservation of these important reserves.  The Mulligans Flat Board has also contacted the previous Chief Minister about its concerns. They are concerned at the potential impact on the nationally significant research going on in these two reserves

The Group has created a website and facebook page for Throsby (savethrosby).  We urge you to look at it and register as a friend of Throsby.

There is also an urgent need for individuals and community groups to express their concern to the Commonwealth - its an EPBC matter.  They are well aware of the sensitivity of the area, but are not aware of any real community concern about it, hence they are unlikely to push the ACT government on this. If you can a short letter to the Federal Minister, Tony Burke will be welcome. Now is a critical time as the Commonwealth is considering ACT government proposals.
