Rais­ing con­cerns

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - YOUR SAY -

WITH con­cern, Ver­ri­erdale Res­i­dents Group note a re­cent ar­ti­cle by Alex Wat­son (Yandina Creek Progress As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent) stat­ing “The first stage of a Ver­ri­erdale Trail Net­work got un­der way this week on pri­vate prop­erty at the south­ern end of Doo­nan Bridge Rd.

“Stage 1, the Doo­nan Bridge Rd Trail, is the first part of what we hope will even­tu­ally be a trail net­work ex­tend­ing up the length of Doo­nan Bridge Rd and in­clud­ing sec­tions in the Doo­nan Creek En­vi­ron­men­tal Re­serve ......... ”

How­ever, coun­cil has stated that the Doo­nan Creek En­vi­ron­men­tal Re­serve Man­age­ment Plan de­scribes con­straints as­so­ci­ated with a horse trail that was con­sid­ered in the draft­ing of the land­scape con­cept plan.

Al­though ad­di­tional horse trails were re­quested by some peo­ple at a DCER com­mu­nity work­shop, in­clud­ing a trail that would ex­tend into the wet­land area and ad­join­ing pri­vate prop­erty, this has not been in­cor­po­rated into the plan due to the im­pacts this would have on the core en­vi­ron­men­tal val­ues of the site.

VRG and other con­cerned groups hope that this will in fact be the case.
