Picturing Coastal Stories - new book - download here

The idea for this book came out of a special session held in the 2018 Coast to Coast Conference held in Hobart, Tasmania. The session was called “Picturing coastal issues” and built on the idea that a picture is worth a thousand words. Photographers were invited to submit one of their photos that told a coastal story. These were shown in a darkened room on a screen one photograph at a time. The session concluded with a general discussion about the power of photography to tell stories, and it was decided that the photographs and the intended storied be turned into a book: this is that book.

Green Growth Plan for Perth

As most of you know, the State Government has released “Perth and Peel Green Growth Plan for 3.5 million” report – or GGPP – and a whole pile of supporting documents.  These documents are, in effect, the environmental impact statement for the assessments by both the Commonwealth Government and the WA EPA of the environmental implications of the WAPC's draft Perth and Peel@3.5million. The GGPP sets out the likely impacts of the proposed urban expansion for Perth-Peel, how thsoe  impacts are to be managed, and a proposed conservation and broader environmental plans that will compensate for these impacts. These collections of documents are make up the Strategic Conservation Plan.

For your information I have prepared an unofficial summary of the GGPP, which you can download and read by clicking here. Happy reading and happy to get any feedback if you think I have missed something important or made and errors.
