The former air services site in Cranebrook is under threat from a huge housing development that will see an estimated 1800 residents in 610-740 dwellings. The site is an important wildlife corridor linking the former ADI site in St Marys to the Blue Mountains.
The site has immense conservation value and should not be developed in any way. The site should be returned to public ownership. The land should be acquired by the NSW Government and put into the management of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service so that conservation and passive recreation outcomes can be achieved for the community.
