Here is a quick update regarding matters that have come up since our last email (2 July), and information that has been sent through to us from Council.
Update since last email
- Jervis Bay Road/Princes Highway intersection – petition to State Government for a flyover to be built
- A petition will shortly be circulating in the community requesting the State Government support the construction of a flyover at the intersection of Jervis Bay Road/Princes Highway. Please consider signing this petition if you support the flyover option over and above other solutions for traffic management at this very busy and dangerous intersection. Thank you.
- Member Survey
- The Jerrinja Local Aboriginal Land Council has submitted an application to the Federal Government for the preservation or protection of the Anglican Church land on Hawke and Bowen streets because, amongst other reasons, it is the burial site of Bud Billy II – King of Jarvis Bay. The Voice may make a submission of support with regard to this application, but we wish to gauge the support of the membership.
- Can you indicate by email if you:
- a) Support the Voice making a submission
- b) Neutral regarding the Voice making a submission
- c) Do not support the Voice making a submission
- More information can be found on the Jerrinja LALC Facebook page

- At the Bay and Basin Community Forum in November 2019, organised by the Sanctuary Point Branch of the Bendigo Community Bank, the community requested a strategic plan be developed for the Bay and Basin area. The Shoalhaven City Council will fund the development of a Strategic Plan, to be coordinated by the Bendigo Bank and undertaken by Locale Consulting.

- An extremely kind member of the Wyoming community would like to give two gaming PCs to Shoalhaven families with children that were affected by the bushfires. The high spec PC’s were built from a mixture of new and used parts, and have been heavily modified to run any game currently on the market, dependent on game settings. They are particularly geared toward games like Fortnite, mine craft, roblox, PUBG, CS:GO etc. Photos attached –
