Saving Augusta's Natural Assets 

I'm hoping to write to the Minister for Planning and Infrastructure, the Hon. Alannah MacTiernan, before February 28 and tell her why I think the land north of Donovan St should not be zoned for future development. From the AMRSC - Draft District Town Planning Scheme No 1 - Consultation Paper:

Of special note in this regard, is the requirement made by the Minister that land north of Donovan Street in Augusta, presently in a Future Development Zone in Council's existing Town Planning Scheme No 19 - Augusta, be inserted back into DDTPS 1. It was Council?s view, heightened by opinions expressed by the local community, that this land should not be developed because of its special characteristics and sensitivities. Council had, therefore, shown the land to be included within a Public Recreation Reserve but the Minister has insisted that the land be zoned for Future Development.

Hopefully I'll take a pic or two on my next walk through and around this land to illustrate my thinking.
