Preserving Berry Heritage

DS22/1239 - Modifications to DA11/1386 – 75/79 Queen Street, Berry

I have been approached by locals who have asked me to start a petition on this matter. This community petition can be signed by clicking here

For those unfamiliar with this issue, in 2011, a DA was approved for a service station on the abovementioned site.

In approving the DA, council attached several conditions of consent. The applicant is now seeking to radically change those consent conditions which will have a significant impost on the Berry community.

New Primary School at Calderwood

Calderwood is one of the fastest growing areas in our region and requires a new primary school to cater for increasing demand.

The established primary schools at Tullimbar and Albion Park currently serve this area, but with over 400 enrolments each, we need to build a new primary school now.

We need to have the entire community behind this project. Please add your name to this petition below.
