The Boonah Organisation for a Sustainable Shire (BOSS) has announced that Sugarloaf Mountain was saved from becoming a gravel pit in mid February, when the applicants failed to meet requests for further information from various government stakeholders. As of Tuesday 15th February 2011 the application to quarry Sugarloaf has lapsed.

BOSS representative Julie Jackson said, “the Save Sugarloaf campaign involved many people who are passionate to retain the beauty of the Scenic Rim and its iconic places.

“Their presence was felt at the Boonah Show, World Environment Day Festival at Boonah and many other meetings and events where they gathered signatures on petitions and declared their protest on numerous signs around the region.

“It would be comforting to think that the community outrage at this proposal contributed to ensuring it didn’t proceed.

“The development of the Scenic Rim Community Plan may provide a perfect opportunity to let Council know very strongly the value you place on preserving our natural heritage, and in fact anything you feel is important.

“Think about your vision for the future, and please take the time to contribute through the online survey or talk to council at events organised across the region over the coming months,” Julie said.
