For those who are interested, the submission COG made on this assessment is available on the COG website.  This assessment covers the remaining developable lands in Gungahlin, including Throsby next to Mulligans Flat/Gooroo reserves, and has potential impacts on the Superb Parrot breeding colony on Throsby Ridge.  Essentially, COGs concerns are an inadequate buffer from the urban edge (only 100 metres) to the parrots breeding site and indirect impacts from nesting competitors, especially Common Mynas, which are likely to be serious threats to the parrots breeding.  The SEA includes a number of areas going into reserve and we support this, particularly the proposal for the Throsby neck area and Kinlyside (near Hall) going into reserve, but believe more of Throsby adjacent to the parrots nesting area down to Horse Park Drive must be conserved as a buffer.
