Heartbreaking news

This is the news about the destiny of Alkimos area (North Coast Times). Very depressing:
A district structure plan for Alkimos Eglinton will be released for public comment.
Councillors accepted the plan at a council meeting last week with a condition that the proponent, who submitted the document on behalf of landowner, completes three specified tasks before and during the advertising period.
These task include the preparation of a staged plan for the 2606ha development.
It is the next major stage of development in the North-West corridor.
A council report says that councillors did not need to assess the structure plan in detail before moving forward.
A preliminary overview found that the document was ready for advertising.
The city will now forward a copy of the structure plan to the WA Planning Commission and with an accompanying invitation for the WAPC to comment.
The development will attract between 53.000 and 55.000 people and about 20.000 more dwellings to the city.
It could include regional centres, service commercial areas, coastal villages, local centres, playing fields and pedestrian and cycle paths as well as provisions for various local and regional employment opportunities.

No one mentions all the trees and animals that are going to die in the name of progress
