I am signing because I am a local resident there and with whatever current infrastructure etc and it could not take anymore excessive population plus nobody want Blackmans Bay to be a high density living area

SOS Save Our Suburb, from further development that will destroy endemic bird habitat, Eucalyptus trees that are over 100 years old which the endemic Yellow Throated Honey-eater, Yellow Wattle Bird and many other endemic bird species feed and roost. Save the land once dwelt on by local Aboriginal people. Save the ever increasing storm water problems due to all the development already taken place over the last 10 years. Save our beach which is currently polluted due to all the storm water flowing straight to the Blackmans Bay Beach. This is not about 'people' it is about much more, protecting our environment and wildlife. Also the Kingborough Council proudly announced in July 2019 it had issues a 'Climate Emergency Response' which received praise from Greenpeace Australia Pacific. In reality the council is allowing the destruction of Eucalyptus trees throughout Blackmans Bay that are older than any living person on earth. In this day of climate emergency what an embarrassing CONTRADICTION it is for local residents to witness this hypocrisy of declaring a climate emergency response and allowing these vital necessities to reverse climate change to be chainsawed to the ground for developers profits. SOS we will not be overcome. Resident Mark

Catholicare charitable status doesn't pay tax, in receipt of government, wants privilege to increase its real estate on delicate environment, Aboriginal heritage and the endangered swift parrot. Pay the rent and pay into the redress scheme. The pope doesn't like gays, women or indigenous people. https://www.acnc.gov.au/charity/d6905a2f904d7b2de4859289b2ab12cd#financials-documents

The precious coastal habitat must be saved, especially for the Swift parrot. We do not need more housing on the coast, there is masses of room elsewhere for more housing. This important coastal should be maintained, perhaps the Catholic body that is hoping to make lots of money on the deal could do something for the Environment and donate the land to a conservation organisation.

Excessive development of this foreshore site is inappropriate for the biodiversity, scenic values and public amenity of this coastal Bluff area.It is part of a coastal "zone" of contiguous native vegetation and habitat including for swift parrots
