Save Public Parkland at beautiful Middle Head on Sydney Harbour.
Dear Prime Minister, please revoke your Government's decision to allow a private residential large-scale development on public parkland.
Why is this important?
We all cherish this part of Sydney. This development hands over public parkland to a private developer and sets a dangerous precedent for other parks. It also destroys heritage-listed WWII military buildings which the Government promised to save.
The Headland Preservation Group was established in 1996 by the Sydney community in response to the proposed residential development of former Department of Defence sites on Sydney Harbour.
In response Tony Abbott campaigned “to save the last unspoilt headlands on Sydney Harbour” and in 2001 the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust was established to protect and conserve harbour foreshores for all Australians.
And we are angry that it’s happening all over again! We thought we’d saved and protected it forever. Middle Head is not Mosman’s backyard - it is Australia's front yard.
How it will be delivered
We plan to deliver the Petition to Mr Abbott in person, and you are all welcome to come along. We will ask Mr Abbott to give Australians an early Christmas present by revoking this development consent.
