Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS along the Roe 8 Cor­ri­dor have been asked to report any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour on the re­growth site af­ter trail bikes and four-wheel drives tore up part of the area last week­end.

Bic­ton MLA Lisa O’Mal­ley, who is chair­woman of the Re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing Roe 8 Work­ing Group, said it was dis­ap­point­ing not ev­ery­one val­ued the cor­ri­dor.

“We want to trea­sure this place, not tres­pass,” she said.

A sci­en­tist pho­tograph­ing the re­growth took pho­tos of the men and a 4WD that al­legedly cre­ated cir­cles in the ground and handed them to po­lice and City of Cockburn com­mu­nity se­cu­rity ser­vice CoSafe.

“This type of in­ci­dent is dan­ger­ous to human life and will de­lay the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of this site,” Ms O’Mal­ley said.

A fenc­ing strat­egy has been signed off and a con­sul­tant to draft a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion plan will be ap­pointed soon.
