North Rothbury Residents Group
Protectors of the Persoonia and Resident lifestyle
We have grave concerns for the future of the village of North Rothbury and the endangered Persoonia Pauciflora which has been documented as growing nowhere else in the world except the bush area around North Rothbury village as well as ecologically endangered woodland.
With the approval of Huntlee, the largest development in NSW consisting of 7,200 lots, this plant has very little chance of survival. Already many hectares of bushland has been cleared, some illegally, and many of these fragile plants have already been destroyed. Provisions for the protection of this plant in the development application are highly inadequate based on unsupported documentation.
The development will create a huge strain on the local essential services already suffering due to a lack of adequate infrastructure in an isolated position.
The residents who moved to North Rothbury for a country lifestyle will also no longer have the benefit of living in a quiet bushland setting. Replacement of our lovely country area will be in part a ghetto with lots as small as 150sq metres
Currently the final stage of approval is with the Minister for the Environment and Heritage, Mr Mark Butler MP. We would urge everyone to make their intentions known via a petition, we are circulating.
Please take advantage of this last opportunity for the preservation of this critically endangered plant and a treasured lifestyle by responding to this petition.
