Last chance to sign petition to help save walking track
LOCALS and tourists are being urged to support the ‘Save the Peterson Creek Walk’ petition to save this popular attraction.
The entrance to the track at Allumbah Pocket goes through private land and is now subject to a development application for a new subdivision.
After learning of the application, the Yungaburra Association and Yungaburra Landcare Group, who maintain the walking track began talks with the landowner and Tablelands Regional Council to avoid the “future implications” if the development is successful.
Following TRC’s last meeting, where they agreed a final report must be tabled at the next meeting, Yungaburra Association created a petition to solidify and prove to council just how much people want to keep the track open.
Yungaburra Association member and petitioner Rolf Straatemeier said the support so far has been incredible and calls on anyone who “loves the walk and the wildlife on the walk” to sign.
“We have had so many people respond to the petition, and it has been very encouraging for the Yungaburra community,” he said.
“We need more signatures, though, so we really encourage anyone who loves the walk and the local wildlife to please sign the petition.”
The petition is still available to sign before the next TRC meeting on 26 October at www.yungaburra.com/petition
