Friends of Huntlee

What this story below from the Newcastle Herald (12.8.11) doesn’t say is that Friends of Huntlee spokesperson is also the President of the Branxton Chamber of Commerce.  Naturally  the desire of business operators is to make money, however we must strive to have development which does not harm the environment and which does not exacerbate the problems of urban sprawl.

Huntlee would have reduced the range of a critically endangered plant found nowhere else in the world by over 50%; cleared hundreds of hectares of endangered woodland; and placed 20,000 people on the end of a freeway 60kms away from major centres and dependent on cars.
