Perth people to stand up for public transport

Perth people will make their views on WA's public transport heard in a series of community meetings throughout the city, starting on Monday in Edgewater.

The Greens are facilitating a community response to the State Government's 20 year public transport plan, which leaves huge gaps in the north-west, eastern and southern corridors.

"The public transport plan looks good on paper, but it is dangerously short on ambition," said Lynn MacLaren, Greens WA spokesperson for Transport. Read more »

Save Beeliar Wetlands Rally

Aug 20 2011 11:00

Saturday 20th August 2011, 11am -1pm at Bibra Lake reserve, Progress Drive (between Hope Road and Gwilliam Drive)

Gather together on the shores of our precious Bibra Lake to send a loud and proud message to the state government. The days of covering wetlands with bitumen are gone. Building more roads only leads to more traffic, more pollution and more impacts on the health of our communities and environment.
Please join us in sending a message to the EPA and the State Government asking them to abandon their plans to destroy the beautiful Beeliar Wetlands  with an expensive and unsustainable road to nowhere.

We will not allow our Beeliar Wetland to be destroyed by a major highway extension. Read more »

The Case For Saving the Beeliar Wetlands from Roe 8

The State Government is currently taking public submissions as part of the Public Environmental Review (PER) process for the proposed Roe 8 Highway Extension. Lynn is opposed to the construction of the proposed Roe 8 Highway extension and has produced some factsheets detailing her concerns which can be downloaded here. These are intended to help members of the community to make submissions to the PER. Lynn would be most grateful if you could help distribute these through your networks. More copies of the factsheets can be obtained from our office.

Lynn is urging concerned community members to consider making a submission to the PER; this can be as simple as writing a letter expressing your view about the project. Or you can use the form on the Conservation Council website. This is an important opportunity for you to influence Government decisions. Without your help, this peaceful place may be changed forever at great cost and for little benefit. The public submission period for the PER closes on 12th September. Read more »
