July 21 - 27, 2013: Issue 120
Barrenjoey Rally - Governor Philip Park
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.
