Lots happening in the 'hood' with good news and not so good news abounding. 

The good news? There's finally some action by Crown Lands on repairing and maintaining Prince Henry's heritage listed structures.  

The not so good news? Well where to start? Our buses are not only being privatised but services slashed, we await the determination of the Sydney Eastern City Planning Panel on Meriton's monstrous rezoning proposal for Little Bay Cove, the proposal by Suez and Opal to build a toxic waste incinerator is not going away any time soon, a decision for the multiple dwelling development in Jennifer Street has not yet been made and, while the proposal for a mega-cruise ship terminal at Yarra Bay has gone quiet for now, don't be fooled...they'll be back once plans are in place to open the international borders.  

There are articles on all of these action issues in the May 2021 newsletter, as well as many others. Welcome back to Marnie Seinor, McGrath Coogee, as a website sponsor, and thanks to Barbara Newman for yet another fascinating historical article. 

Thanks, as always, to each of our generous website sponsors and editorial contributors. Sponsors provide the financial support to enable the Prince Henry Community website to remain viable, as well as news updates to share with our readers. Volunteer contributors provide much of the substance for our newsletters, so a big thanks to volunteers.

There are three particular disputed issues outlined in NMI's response to the Bays & Beaches email. And, there is now a Go Fund Me page - you can help with a donation no matter how small.

COMMUNITY WINS! Meriton's proposal rejected

On 18 June 2021, the Sydney Eastern City Planning Panel rejected Meriton's planning proposal and rezoning review application in an unanimous vote. As the Save Little Bay team had always argued, the proposal was already lacking strategic merit in every relevant aspect.

Report local issues direct to Council via Snap Send Solve

Randwick Council has advised that often, an effective way to report Council-related problems, such as graffiti, cracked footpaths, damaged infrastructure, overgrown trees, illegal dumping, etc, is to use the Snap Send Solve app. This enables Council to track requests effectively.
