The NPA have a long history in advocating for our Bushland and Flat Rock Gully in particular. We were instrumental in the tip closure and regeneration of the bushland. We successfully advocated strongly against the Beaches Link project and we are pleased to confirm that the proposal has now been officially Withdrawn from the Planning System. Our work continues across Naremburn and Willoughby to ensure that our bushland is protected and thrives into the future.

Contaminated Land Investigations

The NPA have advocated for many years that the landfill site at Bicentennial Reserve/ Flat Rock Gully needs to be better assessed and managed. Following investigations associated with the Beaches Link Project we have been notified by council that the area has formally been registered with the EPA as Contaminated Land under the Contaminated Lands Act. Council Advised on the 13th October 2023 that the site was being registered and that council are required to develop a plan and further inspections. The letter can be found here.
