The Tallowood Ridge Estate developer has had an article published on the front page of the Echo this week. The article claims that the changes to the 3C DA ‘considerably reduces the size of the three lots proposed in Stage 3C and places the parts of the land in stage 3C that are forested to now be incorporated into the Shelter Belt along the ridge line.’
What the article fails to mention however is that the large White Gum that is home to parrots and gave the very street it’s name, will not be protected according to the investors who reached out to members of the community by phone this week to inform them of the proposed changes.

The council is still reviewing the DA and has not yet made the decision to approve it.
If the approval goes ahead it will be a shame for the Tallowood Ridge Community to lose such an iconic tree.
