Murrumbidgee - Ginninderra Gorges National Park: Information Note 7

The Premier of NSW, Barry O'Farrell, has forwarded correspondence from the Ginninderra Falls Association about the proposed national park to his Minister for the Environment, Robyn Parker, according to a letter from Mr O'Farrell, dated 7 August 2012. Ms Parker was to visit the falls on Monday, 13 August, but unfortunately had to defer her visit. It is hoped that it can be rescheduled fairly promptly.

Presentation to July 2010 meeting Belconnen Community Council by Damon Cusack.Members will recall that the ACT Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher, undertook to write to Mr O'Farrell after the GFA's meeting with her in May. Ms Gallagher did so, and in her letter said the ACT would be happy to join any NSW working party set up to investigate the proposal. A reply was received, saying Mr O'Farrell would consider it. Ms Gallagher also wrote on similar lines to the Mayor of Yass, Nic Carmody, and the Member for Burrinjuck, Katrina Hodgkinson.

The Federal Member for Fraser, Andrew Leigh, has informed GFA that while the national park proposal had his "in-principle support", precise boundaries would need to be worked out with existing landholders before he could give unqualified support.

GFA will hold the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, 25 September at the Belconnen Library, starting at 8 pm. The guest speaker will be Luke Johnston, of ACT Parks and Conservation, who will talk about Murrumbidgee Corridor vegetation.
