On Friday 19th of July the NSW Government’s Environment and Heritage National Parks and Wildlife web page regarding the proposed amendments to Barrenjoey Headland and call for submissions regarding these was updated. The submissions period has been extended to July 26th due to “some people experiencing technical difficulties in the use of the online submission form between 25 June and 8 July.”

Those who have already submitted comments or document should note that “We encourage anyone who made an online submission during that period to resubmit.”

This week’s Pictorial shares images from the Barrenjoey Rally organised by the Palm Beach and Whale Beach Association and the beautiful scenes around them. As you can tell from these images the upcoming generation and those who have been here for decades attended to voice their opposition to commercialisation of this heritage site. It was a family rally, like Pittwater and all her visitors consider themselves a family, individuals who feel at home and a sense of belonging in this place.

Peter Roberts, four generations of Roberts have lived and still live in Pittwater; for this gentleman's children to be able to walk where their family walked and see what their family saw, unchanged, untainted, keeping the 'Keeper' definition true and intact must remain.
