Saving Lake Knox

Message from Nick Wakeling MP

The Knox community prides itself on our green, leafy environment. That is why many residents are concerned about the proposed demolition of Lake Knox in Knoxfield (located behind Fairhills High School). The lake is an important breeding ground for the Blue-billed Duck.

I recently met with a number of local environment groups including the Friends of Lake Knox Sanctuary, Friends of Blind Creek Billabong, Knox Environment Society, First Friends of Dandenong Creek and Friends of Koolunga Native Reserve to hear their concerns about this important issue.

I would like to thank these groups for their dedication to protecting our local environment in Knox for future generations. These local volunteers do tremendous work to protect the unique character of Knox.

As always, if I can be of any assistance to you, please contact me anytime via email or during business hours on (03) 9758 6011.
