WIN News: Wildfire Welfare

On Tuesday 06 October 2009, WIN News ran a story confirming separate concerns held by the Friends of Grasslands (reported in the news story from the ABC) that proposed expansion of the Airport would have a detrimental effect on local endangered and threatened grasslands and fauna.

In this story the ACT Commissioner for the Environment – Maxine Cooper also confirms that she holds grave concerns about the proposed expansion of the Airport and a proposed northern road. The Canberra Airport claims it has “approval with conditions” for the road in their Draft Environmental Strategy for this road when in reality it has nothing of the sort.
