Pike River Conservation Park

17 Nov 2009 archivespeech

This speech is to indicate that the Liberal Party support the Pike River Conservation Park motion.

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (15:48): The opposition supports this motion, which is procedural to enable a lot on which a house is situated to be excluded from a new part of the Pike River Conservation Park, which was 228 hectares and which, with the addition of the Mundic Native Forest Reserve of some 68 hectares, is to become part of the park. The area has important conservation and protection values and will assist with the Nature Links program, which provides important habitat for our native species. I understand that such a procedure has not been necessary since the land swap within the Gammon Ranges, and that native title and all other such approvals have been obtained. I commend the motion to the council.

Motion carried.
