Save the Calabash Bay Wetlands

We hope this brief summary outlines the urgency of the situation. West of the large sandbank of Calabash Bay at Berowra Waters is zoned Environmental Protection A 'Wetlands'. Where the Wetlands meet the River Settlement - 3 additional blocks of land have been proposed on very steep land. (In addition to the one block that already exists DA 1009 /2013 and this subdivision was recommended for approval at Council Meeting-14th September 2016. It was deferred only because of a legal challenge.This Development Application is being assessed under the Local Environmental Plan 1994 because it was originally lodged days before the LEP 2013 was gazetted. DA 1009 has been kept active through several major reincarnations, the latest of which involves picking up 3 huge blocks on the ridge and moving them to the river frontage. Many of us familiar with Calabash Bay believe the additional development on this wetlands boundary will result in unmanageable environmental stress on the wetlands and river system and unnecessarily introduce buildings into a pristine and uniquely beautiful place that should belong to future generations.This is a complicated DA with environmental issues at every turn. We hope this petition will make the Councillors listen to the Communities objections. We would like to present it at the December 14th meeting when the matter is being determined.
