Maleny Voice


Cornerstone Properties Ltd call in Deen Bros Demolition Contractors to Clear Site on 14 April 2004

Early on the morning of Wednesday 14 April 2004, without any prior warning, Cornerstone sent in the heavies from Deen Bros (based in Brisbane) to clear the controversial Maleny development site of trees. If Woolworths and Cornerstone wanted to incite public opposition to their development, they couldn't have done a better job...

Concerned local residents of all ages and from all walks of life rallied to protest at the destruction and to try and prevent the clearance of trees from the riparian zone along Obi Obi Creek. Graham Earle was one of these people, here is his account of the day.
