The following letter thanks and acknowledges the comments provided by local residents and businesses to my letter dated 25 August, about the development of a Craft Brewery by the Ballistic Beer Co at 59 McCarthy Rd, Salisbury (A004414217).

The letter informs residents about the issues related to the application for the site to produce alcohol so that they can have their say in relation to the impacts from that use.

A separate application has just been lodged regarding using the site as a Cellar Door or Hotel.  Once again, residents will be able to have their say about the use of the facility to serve/sell alcohol.

Unfortunately, residents have been upset after seeing and hearing claims that the brewery and the Cellar Door are a "done deal".

Like any development, it needs to go through a due process so that we can get the best, and fairest, outcome for all involved.

This photo was taken by a local resident on the northern side of Toohey Forest.  

This may be an indication that the koala breeding season is about to begin (typically September through to March).

All park users are reminded to keep their dogs on a leash whilst in the reserve.
