Events/ Other

  • Online petition – NO to using Jervis Bay as a Cruise Ship port.
    Please note that the Port Authority has said that they are not CURRENTLY requesting Jervis Bay be used as a cruise ship port. BUT they do want a cruise ship policy developed for marine parks. Once this policy is in place it will be more difficult to stop Jervis Bay being used as a cruise ship port.
    If you have signed the hard copy petition, you can still sign the electronic petition.
  • Sad news – the new Planning Minister has scrapped the Design and Place SEPP : reported in the SMH 5th April 2022.
    “Mr Roberts has now effectively dumped two years’ worth of reforms that Mr Stokes and State Architect Abbie Galvin had promised would have put “sustainability, resilience, and quality of places at the forefront of development in NSW” “. Minister Roberts announced this at a lunch organised by a developer group ‘The Urban Taskforce’, saying that he had ‘heard them’.

Kind Regards,
