No West Dapto Jail

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


While we support the idea of a jail and the economic and employment opportunities it will bring to the south coast, we are against this location.

SUBMISSIONS HAVE OPENED!  BEFORE SIGNING THIS PETITION PLEASE EMAIL NEWPRISONS@JUSTICE.NSW.GOV.AU STATING YOUR OPPOSITION TO THE JAIL BASED ON THE NEGATIVE IMPACT IT WILL HAVE ON THE LOCAL ECONOMY, DAPTOS COMMUNITY AND THE EXISTING STRATEGIC PLAN FOR  RESIDENTIAL GROWTH (20,000 NEW HOMES) IN THE AREA.

We urge decision-makers to quickly accept this plan is wrong and identify and investigate all alternate industrial, rural or farming locations on the south coast that would bring similar economic opportunity and would not impact the region’s fastest residential growth area and nearby sensitive environmental communities.

We identify over one million acres of appropriate land on the south or far south coast. We believe that West Dapto and surrounds is an important, strategic growth area with the potential for continued, sustainable and high-quality residential suburbs.

In 20 years, this jail will be in the middle of medium density residential suburbs and will negatively affect existing residential communities,  property value and have numerous other social and economic impacts. We believe the proposal is woefully short-sighted compared to alternate locations on the south coast.

OUR BELIEFS

· We support the idea of a jail and the economic and employment opportunities it will bring to the south coast. But we are strongly against this location.

· We can identify over one million acres of industrial, rural or farm land on the south or far south coast that would bring similar economic opportunity and would not adversely impact the region’s fastest growing residential area.

· Government infrastructure like this is built to last 100 years. In 20 or 40 yr time, let alone 100, this jail will be in the middle of medium density residential suburbs

· ‘Sustainable and high-quality residential suburbs in West Dapto is critical to the region’s economic growth’ (Wollongong Council, West Dapto Strategy) and provides rare opportunity for young families and first home-buyers to enter and benefit from the property market

· To ensure the community is aware, we encourage all residents to spread the word and argue the case against a jail in Dapto

· To ensure the community is heard, we encourage all local residents to have their say on the project. 

Please sign the petition to say No West Dapto Jail! Not in my backyard, not in my community. Find somewhere else!
