Little Bay Beach

Just as we thought that we Aussies had beaten the virus, Victoria's world erupted and New South Wales could well be the next in line. Our thoughts and best wishes go to our southern neighbours, and here's hoping that we in New South Wales are fortunate enough to fare a little better than they're doing right now.  

However, there's a little light at the end of the tunnel. Meriton's ghastly proposal for Little Bay Cove was recently rejected by both the Randwick Local Planning Panel and Randwick Councillors. Of course the next hurdle, the State Government's Sydney Eastern City Planning Panel, may be a tricky one. You can help by writing to the Chair of that Panel, The Hon Carl Scully, and others, with your personal views on why the Meriton proposal is entirely inappropriate. 

With the reputational damage experienced by the cruise industry in recent times, one could be forgiven for presuming that the proposal for a mega-cruise ship terminal at Yarra Bay would be abandoned completely, and relegated to history. However, despite an 18 month hiatus announced by the Berejiklian government, it would appear that work on the project continues. Your letter writing skills on this one would be greatly appreciated too.  

And, don't forget the proposal to build a waste to energy incinerator in Matraville, with multiple benefits for Suez and Opal, and only contamination and more pollution for nearby and distant residents. Contact the No More Incinerators Group to find out how you can help. 

Now for a well-deserved shout out to our local clubs, NFPs, cafes, and other businesses. What a great job they're all doing in such challenging times. How dull would life be without them? Please support each local business whenever you can - they need as much help as is available. 

Thanks, as always, to each of our generous website sponsors and editorial contributors. And, welcome to new sponsor, The Strata Collective, a strata management company servicing clients in Sydney and across NSW. 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.
