Click for more global actions one person can take

Follow-up to our post of February 12 last year, Help save a historic village (psst! Pass it on):

"The New South Wales Government has been urged to ban a large scale housing development at Catherine Hill Bay, now that the area has been named as one of the state's most endangered historic sites.

"The National Trust has listed the township among three rare heritage sites in NSW that it believes should be protected.

"Currently there are plans to build 900 new homes near the town.

"Catherine Hill Bay Progress Association president, Sue Whyte, says the National Trust agrees with residents that plans for a tenfold increase in the area's population will destroy its significance as a former coastal mining village."
