Save Perth Hills Rally, 5th February 2023, Sculpture Park, Mundaring

Save Perth Hills (and Facebook) and has been opposing a large scale intensive development proposed in Stoneville for over 30 years. This development is inappropriate for the area for many reasons, including land-clearing (a carbon sequestration, climate change, risk), fire risk, and further threats to our already Critically Endangered Black Cockatoos

The development was rejected by the WA Planning Commission in 2020, but the Satterley Property Group is again proposing the development.

Please see the attached SPH rally flyer to the rally. It is important that we show strong support if we want to prevent this type of development setting a precedent in the hills.

Hope you can make it!
