Parkwood Planning Proposal - comment summary

  1. The currently proposed irregular conservation park boundary should be rounded, in line with best practice, to eliminate urban protrusions into the conservation zone. These intrusions expose residents to greater fire danger, increase the impact of urban development on native species and create “islands” that will isolate ecological species resulting in eventual extinction (see attached APZ map below).

Ginninderra Falls: Urgent!
