Stop allowing Bellbird Park to be carved up by developers! I am a long term Bellbird Park resident and I find it absolutely disgusting that this suburb is being carved up and morphed into a concrete jungle. Our block is adjacent to Happy Jack Gully and the increase in stormwater runoff from neighbouring developments such as Brentwood Forest have significantly increased creek levels during rain events, to the point where it is now effecting the footings of our home.
We moved here for the peace and tranquility - 10 years ago you could leave your driveway gates opened permanently and not give it a second thought, now we have to ensure they're closed and locked every night as we regularly see groups of youths walking down the street checking car doors and scoping out houses. Crime rates have gone through the roof in what once was a peaceful place to live. Now the original residents are slowly being boxed in by blocks being carved up by developers. The roads can't handle the traffic, the waterways can't handle the extra load and I'm sure the police are sick of the additional crime! Not to mention the extensive wildlife that has been displaced because of the mass tree clearing activities. No thought or consideration is given to resident wildlife, and I've seen koalas literally be run out of bushland as mass clearing takes place, so called 'fauna spotters' unable to do their job effectively, resulting in koala injuries. Clearing has taken place during bird nesting seasons, and no one asks the neighbouring residents about wildlife when performing their so-called wildlife surveys during the application process. We've been told there's 'no evidence of koalas was found' in surveys prior to us literally having to run out and stop excavators to allow those very 'non-existent' koalas safe passage before they were killed as they ran out of the bush terrified!!! Absolutely disgusting to see first hand how the council keeps allowing this to happen for the sake of a dollar. Plenty of residents have had enough - we don't want small blocks here! Keep the lifestyle that once was Bellbird Park alive!
