To The South Australian Minister for Planning,
We, the concerned residents of and visitors to, the Eyre Peninsula petition you to not authorise the Whalers Way Orbital Launch Complex for the following reasons.
The private enterprise Southern Launch is planning to develop Whalers Way into an Orbital Launch Complex, to enable international companies to regularly launch satelites, via rockets, into orbit.
Whalers Way is a awe-inspiring, fragile frontier coastline south of Port Lincoln, surrounded on all sides by native australian beauty. It would be impacted beyond repair by development of a rocket launch facility. This industrial site, with rocket fuel storage facilities, poses a significant bushfire risk.
Southern Launch have proposed exclusion zones during their frequent launches. Up to 20 households would potentially be evicted for up to 48 hours during launch times.
Whalers Way, and nearby Fishery Bay, are frequented daily by Eyre Peninsula residents, and are tourism hotspots. Access to these locations would be restricted.
Southern Launch are already affiliated with defence organizations, and would inevitably involve "private" military contractors
Do not let private enterprises destroy our natural beauty in the name of progress. Stop Southern Launch.
