It was pleasing to see a State Government listening to locals. The protection afforded by the Coalition Government for Hanging Rock will allow us to keep this special place as pristine as possible without locking it up altogether. That it has happened, is in no small part due to Liberal candidate, Donna Petrovich, who has lived in these parts for more than 20 years; and Amanda Miller, our upper house member, advocating strongly behind the scenes.
It should also be remembered that the incoming Liberal National Coalition Government has, since 2010, delivered on its pledge to ban wind mills from the Macedon Ranges. Both Labor and Green policy would allow the placing of wind mills close to Hanging Rock.
Governments should be judged by what they deliver, not just what they promise.
