Carseldine Development Threatens Urban Bushland

Carseldine Development Threatens Urban Bushland

Plans to develop an “Urban Village” in Carseldine on Government owned land on Beams Road threatens the integrity of this green space. The development has been announced without any concrete plans, any consultation with residents and without any consideration of the impact on flora and fauna. Various structured surveys and anecdotal reports show that this piece of urban bushland has a very rich flora and fauna. Further, pieces of bushland such as this in the middle of our suburban environment are becoming increasingly rare and valuable. There are numerous studies that show the value of green space in urban and suburban environments. Should this development proceed, it must take into account the need to preserve the green space and protect the rich flora and fauna.
