MS PATTEN: My question is for the Minister for the Environment.
Recently there was a major landslip on the Yarra River bank close by the Glenvill residential development of the old Amcor paper mill site at Alphington.
Two large gum trees have fallen into the river, and I am lead to believe that there are several others at risk.
These are important habitats for local wildlife.
Residents believe water flows and seepage have changed since the development began and speak of a lack of urgency by both Glenvill and government officials in investigating what is clearly a major environmental problem at this massive site.
My question is, what immediate action is the Minister taking to investigate this pressing issue and what steps is her department taking to ensure the protection of local wildlife in the area surrounding the old Amcor paper mill development?
