Thank you for your clearly outlined website. I am a Badger Creek resident that believes Council has totally underestimated community concerns re all proposed trails.

Maybe the Yarra ranges council should be taking the opinions of locals into account, they pay heaps in rates so should get listened to.

This project is ruining people's homes and the environment. So little thought was given to it, they were going to bulldoze through the old cemetery and the golf course.

Mountain bike trails and other tourism projects are are good but need to be managed and planned carefully. This project is inappropriate for the area and is being rushed through without due process or local consultation. The proposed sites are vulnerable and delicate environments and are easily and irreparably damaged.

I am worried about the affect on the town, particularly parking and affordable housing options, and with the conflicting information coming from Council staff I have no confidence that residents concerns are being taken seriously and being addressed. I also object to Mountain bike tracks being in residential areas and any development that results in increased traffic on La La Falls and Old Warburton Roads.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I have emailed Council Members as well as State and Federal Members of Parliament. I'm against the amount of money being spent when most of us don't have sewage, gutters or footpaths. What I fear more than anything is a Forrest Fire in this sensitive area. We where nearly wiped out in 1991 & 2009. Can you imagine 130,000 Competitors and Tourist wondering in sensitive bush.
Where is the thought and Protection for the sensitive Flora and Fauna?
What happened to Consultation of the Locals.

Mountain bike tracks are an environmental disaster in many places around the world and very inappropriate for this day and age!

Old Warburton rd is not designed to cope with a high flow of traffic. This will create a personal safety risk in the event of emergency evacuation. Just one of the many problems that need to be addressed.
