Save Lot 2 Sawtell Road, Toormina for Koalas, Community and Biodiversity.

The Coffs Harbour City Council has received a development application #0818/18  , which proposes the clearing of 6.99 hectares of heavily timbered and undeveloped land opposite the Linden Avenue intersection,  to build  a 57 lot housing subdivision. The majority of the area to be bulldozed is designated and zoned Primary Koala habitat.

Two Ecological Assessments have found the area has significant and recognized high value habitat,  not only for Koala, but for a range of other native flora and fauna as well.

The development will also destroy  an Endangered Ecological Community (EEC) which is a coastal   Paperbark and sedge land swamp , and would result in a broken link in a critical Koala migration corridor.

Residents and friends of Boambee East and Toormina  are opposed to the loss and destruction of yet more important local Koala habitat, especially given the alarming data which is emerging, revealing a significant decline in NSW Koala numbers,  and the blatant attack this DA makes on our very own local  Koala Plan of Management.

We also object to the sudden horrific and irreversible impact the project will have on the other animals, birds and insects which regularly frequent our gardens and the loss of amenity which contributes to our health and well -being.

We ask all who wish to secure a strong future for the Koala and the future health and well-being of all biodiversity on this planet to sign this petition,  and send a strong signal to the Coffs Harbour City Council and the Developer  that this DA is NOT appropriate.
