Koala habitat saved by state government
A controversial lot just a kilometre from Cabarita Beach is under contract with the state government with plans for the lot to be added to koala reservation.
The announcement of the 73.5ha lot purchase was made via State Member Geoff Provest's Facebook page on Thursday night.
"After representations to the Minister for Environment Matt Kean in recent months I was delighted to join with him (Thursday) as he confirmed contracts have exchanged on Lot 2 Clothiers Creek Road, Bogangar," Mr Provest said.
"This parcel of land will now be added to the habitat portfolio for Cudgen Nature Reserve.
"This is great news for the koalas and the community members passionate to ensure this land was preserved."
In July last year a 98ha lot of land was also purchased by the state and added to the reserve.
