Backlash for the Sutherland Woronora Cemetery bushland extension proposal

Woronora Cemetery has applied for an extension of 13 hectares into the Prince Edward park and is awaiting approval from the Sutherland Shire council and the community.

Feasibility studies currently conducted by the council, however in a local meeting, 23 of the 700 Woronora Valley residents had opposed the original plan for the extension into the bushland park.

Objections from the Resident Association’s mentioned that the land is an “unusual strip of ridge-top bushland ranging from dry forest to hanging swamp in a high-use fauna and birdlife corridor” and such development will disturb these species.
