Wildlife Corridors were created to allow Fauna to move freely between Habitats.
The proposed 106 Apartment Seniors Development at Chatswood Golf Club will have a significant impact on the local wildlife habitat in the wildlife corridors linking four native bushland reserves – Mowbray Park Reserve, Coolaroo Reserve, Ferndale Park Reserve and Lane Cove National Park.
To obtain a Site Compatibility Certificate (SCC) the developer documented that 28 trees would need to be removed for construction. However the Development Application (DA) that was lodged on 22 May 2020 now proposes a catastrophic loss of 255 trees. This unacceptable proposal would remove remnant bushland and sandstone outcrops identified in the Willoughby City Council Natural Heritage Register. It also contravenes the aims and objectives of SEPP No. 19 Bushland in Urban Areas.
Many Threatened and Endangered Native species owe their survival to these Wildlife Corridors and need this habitat for feeding and protection.
Please stop any further inappropriate development in these Wildlife Corridors, particularly the one in West Chatswood & across Sydney.
