In Sawtell NSW on “Subdivision-Non Strata - 57...” at Sawtel Road Tormina NSW 2452:

Kerry McDonald commented

I object to the proposed development of Lot 2 Sawtell Road.

I grew up exploring this beautiful, enchanting ecosystem as a boy with my friends and family and it is where my fascination with the natural world began. I was so fortunate to watch a Satin Bowerbird build its nest or glimpse a Swamp Wallaby peek out from the bushland so for this inspiring childhood to be ripped away from future generations is an absolute outrage.

The fact that this DA exists highlights that you have failed at recognising the fundamental importance of leaving this wildlife corridor untouched and seem only concerned with profit and that is alarming.

We are talking about land that CHCC has deemed to be Primary Koala Habitat as well as areas of protected coastal paperbark and sedgeland swamp! Ten major groups of Australian native bees including hundreds of sub species reside in NSW and are essential pollinators who love eucalypts and melaleucas of which abound in this wildlife corridor.

We look to CHCC to be at the forefront in conservation as highlighted in the Koala Plan of Management introduced in 1999.

Don’t take a backwards step, instead take responsibility for our community’s future and have some respect for the land and wildlife.
