Title
Stop sand mining in the Lang Lang to Grantville forest corridor
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the destruction of the remnant coastal forest in the Lang Lang to Grantville corridor. The corridor is been destroyed by the activities of sand mines operating within the forest under historical work authorities. This corridor is the last significant stand of mature forest in the Western Port and Bass Coast region, which supports threatened species and contributes to the character of the community.

There must be no further expansion of mining operations in the Lang Lang to Grantville forest corridor so that the remnant forest is protected from removal.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to place an immediate moratorium on sand mining work authorities within this fragile Lang Lang to Grantville forest corridor and ensure all existing remnant forest is protected from removal.
