To concerned Community members
Please attend at gathering with members of the community concerned about the impact of the proposed development at Nobbys headland.
The proposed development of the site will have a permanent and irreversible impact on the heritage values of Nobby's Lighthouse. If this is the case, Newcastle cannot afford to adopt decisions that do not support sustainability in relation to its most valuable heritage landmark.
Newcastle is a very creative city with immense pride in its heritage, achievements and culture. The City was built on the spirit and commitment of hard working men and women who valued Newcastle's heritage. Unfortunately, unlike other Cities in Australia, Newcastle cannot boast many iconic sites like Nobby's Lighthouse.
This national treasure should therefore be protected at all costs and for future generations of Australians.
The site should be opened (and protecting its heritage) so it can be enjoyed by local residents and visitors to the region. However, it is important that Newcastle adopts environmental leadership and sustainable decision making to its limited heritage sites, which in turn will create immense social value to unique assets such as Nobby's Lighthouse.
