IMPORTANT NOTICE

The proposed marina on the Loganholme Wetlands has now proceeded to the Public Notification Stage.

Anyone wishing to object has until 27th November 2003 to send a submission to Logan City Council.

Please quote Application Number MCUI/43/2003 on your submission and send it to: Chief Executive Officer, Logan City Council, 150 Wembley Road, Logan Central, Qld 4114.

Note: The bird Observers Club of Australia has now recorded 117 bird species on the site, 26 of these are protected under the Commonwealth EPBC Act them and 2 of them (Grey Goshawk and Black Necked Stalk) are listed as Rare under the Nature Conservation act of Qld.

After the Preliminary Fauna report found significant species on the site, it made a recommendation for an Environmental Impact Assessment. The developer seems to have ignored this recomendation and has taken the proposal to Public Notification without an EIA.

The developer has now increased the proposed number of yacht berths from 300 to 400. How can 400 yachts enter the shallow Logan River Estuary? There is no mention in the developerís report of the dredging that† will need to be done at the Logan River Mouth. This will destroy sea grasses and impact on dugong populations.
