KUR-World: ‘Kuranda Region Have your Say’ Email

The press of ‘urban sprawl’ has happened to our region before – and we fought and won to remove the ‘Myola Precinct’ from our local plan.

The Kuranda Environlink and Fairyland Corridors – where we live and work – must be protected from concrete built environments and the massive human population proposed with KUR-World sardine-style urban subdivision.

To allow this proposal to go ahead will MOST CERTAINLY lay waste to the rainforest connectivity of our region (we’ve cleared over 50% of these forests already) and add more pressure to the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem via land-water on the Barnwell 626ha – 100% catchment for tributaries that flow to the Barron River, and to the sea.

Our Kuranda Region communities have both the right – and the obligation – to ‘Have our Say’ about the KUR-World proposal as it will affect life-as-we-know-it in the Kuranda Region forever.

Ken Lee purchased 626ha of historically zoned Freehold land in a private sale in 2014. Now we have a $650 million proposal – without any PUBLIC CONSULTATION FROM MAREEBA SHIRE COUNCIL – that will inject mega-tons of concrete plus 4000 additional humans.

Our Local, State and Federal governments want to hear what you think about that!
