In Morayfield QLD on “Reconfiguring a Lot -...” at 26 Rangeview Road, Morayfield QLD 4506:

Jodi Herbert commented

I object strongly to this application on a number of grounds.

1. There are a number of koalas that are known to inhabit the land in question. One was sighted only last week (16/12/20). Koalas inhabit the entire area around the land in question and they are already being placed under stress due to habitat destruction. How is it possible or acceptable to approve a development as large as this in a “Koala Corridor”. This application places an already struggling koala and kangaroo population at further risk.

2. Sheep Station Creek and surrounding area is environmentally significant with significant and large habitat trees and animal populations. A development such as this will have impacts on the broader environment which sits immediately on the doorstep of this proposed housing area.
The application claims that it will protect existing trees etc as much as possible however, there has already been excavators and clearing on the land in question. We also know the developers history of completely clearing land once development had been approved (see developers previous development sights for evidence of this).

3. The road infrastructure in this area is already extremely lacking, with a steep slope and a dangerous existing corner, the addition of another intersection ( adding a minimum of 11 additional road users) will be extremely dangerous to other road users. I feel the road infrastructure proposed is grossly inadequate for the number of blocks.

4. Flooding impacts this entire area significantly. At times, access to this area is limited and altering terrain and land forms poses risk to existing land owners and the environment. We feel the measures taken on the Development Application are insufficient in terms of flooding preparation.

I ask that the council seriously reconsider this application and support our community in protecting this unique and environmentally significant area.
