Logan Mayor supports longer extension for consultation
Logan Mayor Pam Parker has sent a letter to support our request for a longer extension for consultation for PARK RIDGE CONNECTOR CORRIDOR until end December.
Will this request be met by Minister Craig Wallace?
Community dissatisfaction with the process has lead to the formation of the NO PRC group with a website here with opportunity for discussion on the forum and also a FACEBOOK page
Logan residents are not happy to see a rushed consultation process for a major freight motorway / tollway which would - if ever built as being proposed by a very flexible "corridor of interest" dissect an undervalued landscape into a jigsaw of land patches criss-crossed by roads.
THIS IS NOT LACA'S VISION FOR A STATE REGIONAL BIODIVERSITY CORRIDOR.
THIS STATE REGIONAL BIODIVERSITY CORRIDOR IS WHAT REQUIRES PROTECTION AND PRESERVATION - NOT A ROAD CORRIDOR
ADJACENT TO JERRY'S DOWNFALL AND FLESSER RD RESERVE ARE LARGE PARCELS OF RURAL RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES WHERE WILDLIFE ROAM FREELY - where local residents drive carefully to respect the resident wildfife.
To contemplate a section of a major motorway and network of roads connecting to it without knowing - or telling us - where the freight road will start does not demonstrate good planning. There is another community to the north in Drewvale who are oblivious to this consultation process - or have not yet been consulted by the TMR team.
It is important that as many people as possible provide feedback.
Make sure you include your name and address and a digital signature would doublely ensure it is valid.
This TMR page has all details. You can also fill in an online survey.
Please be aware that the feedback form and survey [same questions as form] does NOT have to be completed except for YOUR COMMENTS.

LACA BELIEVES THAT INSUFFICIENCT BACKGROUND STUDIES HAVE BEEN DONE TO VALIDATE ANY CORRIDOR AND ALSO THAT COMMUNITY HAVE NOT BEEN PROVIDED WITH SUFFICIENT INFORMATION TO MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION. To suggest the validity of a corridor just because it has no direct impact on your particular property is environmentally unethical.
The environmental groups which met in addition to Community Reference Stakeholder Group to input into this process do not believe there is a viable corridor. Marking a line on a map now to build a road when funds are available just before a state election and local council elections is not indicative of good governance. This community of affected and concerned citizens expects better governance and a demonstration of openness, integrity and transparency.
