Saturday 20th April 2013,
Hon. Dr. Denis Napthine,
Premier of Victoria,
Level 1, 1 Treasury Place,
Melbourne, VIC 3002
Congratulations for supporting the 140-turbine Macarthur wind farm in your electorate. I hope, as the Herald Sun reported last week that you truly believe “those opportunities should be pursued at every opportunity.”
Can you please now support households going solar by improving subsidies but also negotiating better feed-in-tariff terms, which are at the moment so low to be almost negligible. There is also a lot of inequity between those households who are trying to ‘do their bit’ because depending on when you were able to afford solar panels the feed-in tariff varies considerably.
As has been discussed time and again, the Kingston Council’s plan to build the foreshore bicycle trail on the cliff top is contrary to messages being brought forward by concerned residents and environmentalists.

Review of the Code of Practice for Timber Production,
Forests and Parks Division,
Department of Sustainability & Environment,
PO Box 500,
East Melbourne, VIC 3002
We object most strongly to the changes to the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act permitting the secretary of the Department of Sustainability & Environment to overrule the Act to enable logging of coupes under the Code of Forest Practice for increased timber production and by so doing deceive the public into believing that the Act still protects valuable old growth forest from destruction.
Letter from: Minister for Planning Office

Dear Ms. Rimington,
Thank you for your letter of 30 November 2011 regarding the recent Environment and Natural Resources Committee of Parliament Inquiry into the Environment Effects Statement Process in Victoria.
Minister of Planning,
As a long established conservation group we are very much aware of the impact large public work projects can have on the environment. We therefore support the recommendations that the Environment and Natural Resources Committee (ENRC) have produced to strengthen the EES process which at present is considered ineffective and easily politicized.
