Justin Madden's response to the petition of 1,543 signatures from Knoxfield

The response is exactly as I anticipated. Justin Madden has interpreted the petition to his own advantage. What we wanted him to do was to impose a moratorium on development in Knoxfield, to save the trees, so the study would in fact have trees to study. At the current rate of tree removal the council report will have no effect on retaining the indigenous canopy trees the Vegetation 3 Overlay is suppose to protect.

Justin Madden stated that it was up to the council to request a moratorium on development in Knoxfield. 1,543 signatures has had no affect on the Minister.
