BREAKING NEWS – URGENT PEOPLE POWER PROTEST ACTION REQUIRED 08.05.13
This week the EPA has again ignored the science and has given conditional approval for a proposed canal housing/inland marina development in the middle of the Rockingham Lakes Regional Park and Bush forever site at Point Peron.
In response please join us for a peaceful protest outside the offices of the developer:
Directions: Get Red Cat bus from outside Perth Underground and get off at stop 16 Emerald Tce West Perth. At around 11am we will then set off and march to the steps of WA Parliament house where we will present our 8000 original signature strong petition to Lynn McLaren MLC at around 11:30am. Bring your own placard or grab one of ours.
It is clear that the EPA and the State Government are not prepared to protect the interests of ordinary people against the greedy developers and the complicit politicians who are pushing for this destructive development. It is now up to the community to stand together to stop this outrageous public land grab. Point Peron is too precious to lose.
To get media attention we need big numbers so please try and come and bring anyone else you can muster. Please like us on Face book - Hands Off Point Peron.
For more information contact email@example.com
URGENT ACTION is NOW required to save Point Peron...!
For more information on the proposed development, please follow this link
Three local groups, Hands off Point Peron, Preserve Point Peron Inc and Friends of Point Peron have formed a coalition and are working in complementary ways to save Point Peron.
We now need volunteers over the next three months to
* get more signatures for the petition
* help with meetings and presentations
* staff stalls at fairs
* obtain invites from groups
Phone or email firstname.lastname@example.org, 0424 598 656 or James Mumme at email@example.com 9527 5339.
At first glance there are eight (8) major issues:
Loss of public access to Mangles Beach and the Bush Forever site
Privatisation of much of Cape Peron
Risk to the Thrombolites in Lake Richmond through changes in water level and quality
Risk to seagrass in Cockburn Sound through dredging
Loss of 33.5 ha of Bush Forever site compromising wildlife on the whole Cape by cutting the bush corridor
Risk to groundwater up to 1km away
On-going costs of dredging, cleaning polluted water, storm damage, insurances.
What is the justification for such a radical project in the first place and especially now that Port Rockingham looks like going ahead ?
HOW YOU CAN HELP? HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
We have four high-powered experts ready to start working on scientific submissions on our behalf.
They are willing to do this at least in part pro-bono but their reports take up to a week and they do need to eat.
Such reports can ask well-researched questions that put the project in doubt. And there are expenses for advertising and public meetings. So we are appealing urgently for $20,000.

About Us: HOPP (Hands Off Point Peron)
Our Aim is to raise awareness about the proposed canal and marina development plans at Mangles Bay in Point Peron.
We are not anti-development but are advocates for sensible development of this beautiful natural asset.
It would seem that the majority of people have no idea of the extent of the proposed development at Point Peron. The plans on the board are for 77 hectares (190 acres) of land to be used to make an inland private canal/marina precinct. This will consist of private d residential house and a marina with a capacity of up to 500 vessels. Unless you have a spare million to purchase something like this, it probably wont benefit you.
We at HOPP support sensible development that provides equal access to the wider community, to include family friendly beaches, cycle paths, natural bushland and cafes/kiosks that everyone can enjoy, not just the elite few.
Don't assume this is going ahead. The propoganda out there doesn't take into account public opinion from those that are properly informed. Once it's sold off to the developers, it's gone for ever.
Let's vote for something we can all enjoy! LETS STOP THE GOVERNMENT LAND GRAB NOW !
