The LNP has approved the Loganlea to Jimboomba High Voltage Power Line. This time next year we will POTENTIALLY have huge concrete poles throughout Logan Village & Jimboomba. See first-hand the poles that will damage our environment, make our community less liveable & make our power bills even more expensive. Please come to Jimboomba Sub-station on Camp Cable Rd (opposite Maryland Rd). Saturday, 1st December at 1.00pm. Show your Xmas spirit & support those people directly affected – it will only take about 20 minutes.
IT IS NOT A SINGLE ISOLATED ISSUE! ALL OF US will be impacted by poor decisions - especially local wildlife that are little valued by many unless as a specimen in a zoo.
COME ALONG TO PROTECT LOCAL KOALAS who co-exist harmoniously with local landholders, and also the cryptic elusive quoll.
COME ALONG TO PROTEST FURTHER DEGRADATION OF LOGAN RIVER
- 5 or more crossings
This time next year should be subject to all approvals being met by conditions imposed by federal compliance agencies for EBPC Act. Because LACA Logan and Albert Conservation Association communicates our concerns to federal agencies wherever matters of national significance are concerned ie quolls and more recently koalas, Energex is aware that they are required to refer the matter to the department.
When the matter is referred it will be open for public comment on the departments website
TIME FOR COMMENT IS ONLY 10 DAYS so we need to make sure we can submit on time. This being so I am concerned about the minister's statement that
'Energex would begin preliminary works before the end of the year, with the project expected to be completed toward the end of 2014.' Possibly refers to obtaining land from landowners. No Christmas cheer there!
Having this happen over Christmas period also challenges us to be aware of opportunity to put in submissions.
The Logan and Albert Conservation Association (LACA) completely opposes the proposed new 110 KV Energex sub transmission line from Loganlea to Jimboomba. We believe the proposed network upgrade from Loganlea to Jimboomba does not balance social, environmental and economic considerations as claimed in the Final IAR. LACA shares the concerns of the wider community about the negative impacts on the community as well as the negative impacts on the natural environment and wildlife. Koalas have been historically recorded in this region and continue to survive here. The Final IAR confirms that this proposal will result in a loss of habitat, habitat connectivity and biodiversity, especially in the southern section of this proposed network upgrade along Camp Cable Rd and Waterford Tamborine Rd. Energex is intending to fragment habitat connectivity within 3 bioregional corridors
