Murrumbidgee - Ginninderra Gorges National Park: Information Note 56

It has been a little while since my last Newsletter. Late last year, we went to the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal against an ACT planning decision which could have potentially affected both the Little Eagles' nest site near Strathnairn and the Scarlet Robin. Following an agreement with the ACT government and the developer, we have now withdrawn the appeal.

There should be a Media Release out soon.
