What's been happening with Powering Perth's Communities aka Eastern Terminal?
Here's an update for your reading pleasure.
This issue hasn't gone away, Western Power would still like to build a terminal substation in Hackett's Gully and our priority is still to stop them doing that.

Did you Know?
Carnaby's Black Cockatoo is officially listed as Endangered.
This bird occurs nowhere else in the world, except Western Australia, and most of its habitat has now been destroyed. Many of the birds we see in our neighbourhood are too old to breed, and there is a good possiblity that the Black Cockatoo will disappear from our skies forever.
Hacketts Gully is home to the Black Cockatoo and all the remaining forest should be protected, not crisscrossed and fragmented with high voltage power lines, gantries, and switchyards.
For more information on this bird please visit Birds Australia.
