LONG BAY, OKURA AND THE MARINE RESERVE IS UNDER THREAT FROM FURTHER INCREASED, INTENSIVE LAND DEVELOPMENT. YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY REQUIRED.
The Long Bay Okura Great Park Society is a community group set up over 15 years ago to preserve the parks, coastline and marine reserve in this area.
After two major Environmental Court cases costing $500,000, the society sought and obtained binding rulings that limited the impact of development along the Long Bay-Okura coastline.
This helped protect our unique coastline and marine reserve.
This is now under threat..........................
