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.
