HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [2.03 pm]: I present a petition containing 13 signatures couched in the following terms —

To the President and Members of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled.

We the undersigned are opposed to the sale of Crown Land Lot 9789 to the City of Melville. The Swan Estuary Marine Park and Adjacent Nature Reserves Management Plan (pgs 4 — 6) recommends Crown Land Lot 9789 (described in the Plan as Reserve 35486) form part of the Alfred Cove A-Class Nature Reserve — required to increase the riparian buffer from its current inadequate depth to a recommended >40m for the highly significant Swan Estuary Marine Park at Alfred Cove. As well, the whole-of-government draft Perth and Peel Green Growth Plan for 3.5 million (Green Growth Plan) specifies that Crown Land Lot 9789 should be brought into the conservation estate in the first stage of implementation.

We therefore ask the Legislative Council to 1) oppose any sale of this land to the City of Melville and 2) recommend that the Government legislates as matter of urgency to draw Lot 9789 into the conservation estate as part of Alfred Cove A Class Nature Reserve Number 35066.

And your petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray. [See paper 2059.]
