Political outreach broadens

We are delighted that representatives of the Blue Mountains Conservation Society today met with Hon. Tony Burke MP, Shadow Minister for the Environment and Water, to brief him about Leave Radiata Plateau Wild.

We emphasised the significance of the area and its environmental values, and discussed the Commonwealth's responsibility for conserving Commonwealth listed endangered species found on the site. It was a positive meeting.

As awareness of Radiata Plateau grows, strength is added to our community voice – we'd like to thank you again for your continued support.

Political support growing for Leave Radiata Plateau Wild

We are delighted that representatives of the Blue Mountains Conservation Society have now met with both our local Federal MP, Susan Templeman, and State MP, Trish Doyle, to discuss Leave Radiata Plateau Wild.

Both Ministers are very supportive, with Susan Templeman arranging for the Society and local residents to meet with the Federal Opposition Environment Minister, Tony Burke, to discuss the campaign further.

This growing support is exciting and continues to add strength to the Council's commitment and our community voice.

Council unanimously committed to Leaving Radiata Plateau Wild

Fantastic news! Last night Mayor Mark Greenhill and the Blue Mountains City Council voted unanimously in support of full protection of Radiata Plateau. As part of this commitment Council will be asking the State and / or Commonwealth Government to acquire the land for inclusion in the Blue Mountains National Park. The community thanks the Mayor and Labor, Liberal, Greens and Independent Councillors for their support for the campaign.

This comes just days after the owners of the Plateau indicated that they were considering their options in terms of the Plateau and open to further conversation about its future.

It's been an exciting week and we are getting closer to securing the future of the Plateau.

Enjoy our new video and many thanks indeed for your ongoing support.

Now is the time to keep up the pressure and let the Government know of your commitment.

5th July
Thank you so much for all your support at Winter Magic - we were delighted by the initial response and interest in the campaign. There were lots of cheers from the crowd during the parade and most importantly a lot of letters sent off to the Minister for the Environment.

With community awareness now growing we'd really like your help in spreading the word far and wide as this is our chance to secure the future of this stunning area and have Radiata (Elphinstone) Plateau become part of the National Park.

We are planning to host a major event at the end of this month (Sunday 30th July) so please keep that afternoon free - details will be released shortly.

Stay wild!

 


 

1st June 2017

We are delighted to announce that Leave Radiata Plateau Wild will be launched at Winter Magic on Saturday 24th June.

Campaign planning has been underway for a little while and with the support of local residents and the outdoor community, we are looking forward reaching the broader community to raise awareness of the necessity of protecting Radiata Plateau from development.

The two of the three development applications that had been lodged have been refused, leaving one approved for a dwelling.
As such, we are firmly committed to seeking protection for the Plateau.

Join us at Winter Magic!
