Council is investigating the destruction of bushland at a new subdivision at Warriewood.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said Council staff are investigating the property at 41 Warriewood Road and will provide more details once further evidence has been gathered.

“Council is aware of what appears to be significant damage to bushland at a property on Warriewood Road.

“Council staff are undertaking an investigation as to the authorisation of works and exploring all options within our power to address this serious issue.

“I’m shocked at the damage caused by these works. Serious questions must be asked how works in this precious bushland area can be justified in contrary to the conditions of their DA.

“Thank you to the community for reporting this matter to Council as protecting our environment relies on the community and Council working together in partnership,” he said.

Council officers have reviewed footage of the area and have raised serious concerns with the site owner about these works.

“The Council and the community have spent many years seeking to maintain creek line corridors free of development and kept in as natural condition as possible as development in the Warriewood Valley has progressed.

“This recent work is contrary to the planning objectives for the area and we are taking this matter very seriously.” Mayor Regan said.

Investigations into the matter are continuing by Council.
