CREW - Clearwater Revival East Wanneroo
CREW has been challenging state government plans for East Wanneroo since 2004. First the Labor government in relation to urban development over high risk acid sulphate soils, and now the Liberals in relation to their industry plans. We are for progressive plans that are good for the economy, the environment and the social fabric of east and south Wanneroo, the proposed industrial plans on top of Perth's drinking water will do the opposite.
We want to bring public attention to government plans to place industry on what is now crown land within the most important area of the Gnangara Mound, that is, its Priority One Public Drinking Resource Area. We want the public to make their own assessment of this plan and support our campaign to stop it, if they agree that this is an outrageous plan.
