Subject: Message for NSW Ministers - Protect the IBM/Mirvac Forest NOW

NSW Govt Ministers must ensure the IBM/Mirvac Forest is dedicated to the Govt NOW not in 5 years time. The 12ha originally promised must be dedicated NOT just 9ha.

•   The IBM/Mirvac Forest & Cumberland State Forest must be made a National Park NOW
•   Mirvac said it wouldn't dedicate the Forest unless it got rezoning
•   Yet Mirvac wouldn't agree to dedicate the Forest as part of rezoning

•   The rezoning should have been conditional on dedicating the Forest NOW  
•   THE COMMUNITY GOT A REALLY BAD BARGAIN OUT OF THIS DEAL

•   Why does Mirvac want to keep the Forest for 5 years? A lot could happen in 5 years  
•   The Govt shouldn't have let Mirvac reduce the offer from 12ha to 9ha either
•   The Forest must be fenced NOW to protect the wildlife or none will be left

More detailed information to include (optional)

As part of the fast track development approval of the ForestinDanger:

 

  • The NSW Government and Mirvac promised the community that the critically endangered Forest on the Mirvac site adjacent to Cumberland State Forest would be dedicated to the people of NSW

  • Residents have found out that won't happen for at least 5 years, until after the development is completed

  • Mirvac said it wouldn't hand over the Forest unless it got rezoning yet it wouldn't agree to any requirement to dedicate the Forest as part of rezoning. That's simply not fair to the community

  • It must be donated NOW not in 5 years time. Anything could happen in that 5 years

  • The Govt should have made the rezoning conditional on Mirvac dedicating the Forest and doing that NOW

  • THE COMMUNITY GOT A REALLY BAD BARGAIN OUT OF THIS FAST TRACK DEAL

  • 12 hectares were to have been protected but Mirvac says only 9 hectares will be donated, and that of course is if it ever happens in 5 years time

  • The Forest must be fenced to protect wildlife from construction damage and domestic cats and dogs from the 600 new households otherwise there will be no wildlife left to protect

 

The community wants the whole 12 hectares donated and they want it donated NOW not in 5 years time

Please either phone, write direct or use our updated auto-email to point out these issues to the politicians that can influence the fate of the Forest and YOUR future.
