On 3-3-10, I attended a public information session, run by the Department of Planning and project partners involved in preparing the Industrial Land strategy (ILS). During the meeting, the panelists referred to rankings attributed to the priority [purple] and possible [blue] industrial areas, as identified in the map on page 25 of the draft ILS. Because page 26 of the draft ILS, 3.3.1 Future Possible Industrial Sites (Landbank), includes the statement: "Of the 29 new industrial sites identified, twenty-three [blue] sites were determined as being suitable for industrial development within the Perth and Peel regions. These sites should be considered as a landbank for future industrial land supply to ensure that the long-term demand for industrial land can be met. These sites will be supported for further investigation only if the current [purple] priority sites fail to deliver the projected land supply owing to major land constraints and other issues, and the situation will be monitored annually." I am concerned about which [blue] areas are going to be targeted next if the [purple] areas aren’t given the go-ahead so I asked the panel if the priority rankings were going to be disclosed. Rebecca Hollett (representing project partner, Aurecon) was asked to respond. She stated that the rankings were included in a CD-ROM relating to the draft ILS, copies of which were available to the meeting attendees. Needless to say, I helped myself to a copy of the CD-ROM so that I could study the rankings myself. I was also concerned that there was no legend to a series of maps in the draft ILS, which commence on page 29 of the draft ILS, so I asked panelists John Chortis (Dept of Planning) and Rebecca Hollett (Aurecon), to explain why there was no legend to the colour-coding of these maps and to explain the colour-codings to me. They were unable to do so. Although I didn’t state the reason for my concern, it was because I’d noted that 2 of the [blue] possible sites in our environs, Nowergup (1) and Jandabup, are coloured grey in the map on page 29 of the draft ILS. Having perused the contents of the CD-ROM, it appears that the 2 concerns I’ve raised are well-founded, valid and linked. On the CD-ROM there’s a report to government, prepared by Aurecon, labelled “Rep04_Industrial Land Capacity Assessment_Final Report APPEN.pdf”. On page 19 of this report, I located the chart of Multi-Criteria Workshop Rankings, which Rebecca had referred me to. In the north-east sector, both Nowergup (1) and Jandabup are given the highest land status value, being 5 on a scale of 1 to 5. Coincidentally, these are the same 2 areas which are coloured grey in the map on page 29 of the draft ILS! The same land status rankings apply to grey-coloured areas of the other Locality Plan maps in the draft ILS. We need to be vigilant in respect of the government’s plans for the Nowergup (1) and Jandabup sites, as the environmental impact of developing them would be the same as for the South Pinjar site. All 3 sites fall into the P1 public drinking water zone, are subject to the same risk of acid sulphate soils, would impact on local wetlands, flora and fauna and the amenity, health and land values of nearby residents. I encourage anyone lodging a submission on the draft ILS to recommend that these areas also be excised from any development plans. In support of this recommendation, refer to another of Aurecon’s reports to government: Rep04_Industrial Land Capacity Assessment_FINAL REPORT.pdf , which can also be found on the CD-ROM. Aurecon ranks Nowergup (1) and Jandabup CONSIDERABLY HIGHER than South Pinjar in their assessment of Northern Region Sites (refer Table 5.2 on page 55 of this report). Pages 27, 30, 31 and 32 of this report also contain some very disturbing comparisons and references to the features of these sites. Although CREW’s primary focus has been on South Pinjar, I hope that everyone recognises that the threat to other nearby communities is just as real and that you are willing to support those of us who are bound to be next in the government’s firing line.

— John McConnell, founder of International Earth Day

Social Quote

... the 20th century has been characterized by three developments of great political importance: The growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy.
