DEVELOPMENT ON KEPPLE ISLAND

Ocean Whispers have received a letter of concern from conservationists who tell us that Queensland's Kepple Island is under threat from development that will cause destruction of acres of natural habitat. Should some pieces of coastal land remain or be allowed to return to a natural state? Those finding merit with this consideration which seeks to

  • oppose the development of Lot 21 (875 ha) for villas and a golf  course.  I support the state government’s assessment that Lot 21 be reserved for conservation purposes. The current lease of Lot 21 is for recreation and public access, not real estate.
  • oppose the building of a marina at Putney Beach due to the damage that will be caused to the sensitive marine environment in the vicinity including fringing coral reefs.
