The battle at Parramatta: Lennox Bridge

This message is from June Bullivant OAM who started the petition "NSW State Government: Save the 1836 David Lennox Heritage Listed Bridge, Parramatta," which you signed on Change.org.

Just read the minutes of the Heritage Council meeting of the 3rd October where there were seven people attended, two declared interests because they work for Parramatta Council, the architects acting for Council were allowed to make a presentation, so five people, yes 5 people made the decision to destroy the Lennox, can you believe it, we had two campaigns to fight this development one we achieved 141 people against the portals, the one we delivered today we had 134 people against it, many more people have emailed to these people that they are against destroying the Lennox, but five people, yes five people can overrule public opinion, and they are not accountable to anyone, does that tell you something.

If you think that we live in a democracy you are wrong. Sign our petition to fight this stupid decision, and make this people rescind it at https://www.change.org/en-AU/petitions/nsw-state-government-save-the-1836-david-lennox-heritage-listed-bridge-parramatta

Southridge update

One of our members carried out our usual drive around the Mount Druitt Districts to see what stages our Heritage buildings were at and was excited to see the house Southridge that our "Fellow" George Nicolaidis and the Society have fought so hard to have restored was well underway.

We need your help.
