POINT PERON is a place of treasured memories for many West Australians and its UNDER THREAT.

The State Government’s proposed private canal housing estate and inland marina development, so-called Mangles Bay Marina (MBM), on public land at Point Peron MUST be stopped.
The Environmental approval of the MBM is nothing short of reckless. It is not a Hillarys-type in-sea marina but a proposed inland marina/canal development in a regional park of natural coastal bush sustaining a unique, threatened and critically endangered ecology.
Canal estates of this type have been banned elsewhere because of their disastrous environmental, financial and social costs.
Despite expert scientists describing the Environmental Impact review as “inherently flawed” the State Government continues to ignore the many serious and detailed environmental concerns and is forging ahead with rezoning the land for urban development
The 1964 Point Peron Land Agreement stipulated that Point Peron’s use is to be ‘restricted to a reserve for public recreation and/or parklands and that the land must not be used ‘for private industrial, commercial or residential development’
Our alternate community-based and initiated plan for Cape Peron Coastal Park is for a World class conservation and recreation park in keeping with the 1964 Point Peron Land Agreement which would be infinitely better for the economy, the environment and the health of our community
Your support will help us STOP the MBM development so we can save Point Peron and create our Coastal Park for the people of WA and Australia forever.

In your email you may include:
A request to see the WA Planning Commission Report
The message : The people have spoken. What more is there to think about?
Tell the politicians the things you would want to share with friends and others about the MBM versus a coastal park
Tell the politicians that it is time for the Government to withdraw the proposed amendment and get behind the community vision for the land to become part of a world class coastal park, which is in keeping with the original intentions for the land as per the 1964 Point Peron Land Transfer Agreement and the land’s “bush forever” status within the regional park”
No matter where you live in WA please lobby your local MP. After the WA Government essentially doing a ‘tick and flick’ on the environmental approvals we are now at the planning phase for the proposed Point Peron Canal Housing Estate aka MBM. For the proposal to go ahead rezoning of our public land is required. This means a major amendment to the Metropolitan Region Scheme which must be approved by both houses of WA State Parliament so it is important – no matter where you live in WA – that you contact your local MP to voice your opposition.
Start an email conversation with your local MP, tell them your concerns and urge them to vote NO to the rezoning of the land when it is presented to them in parliament in the coming months. Your local MP’s details can be found by entering your postcode here: http://www.parliament.wa.gov.au/webcms/webcms.nsf/index
