The Save Manly Oval Alliance has now briefed the Environmental Defenders Office which is obtaining senior legal advice about the strength of a legal challenge and the likely outcome against the Oval car park development. This course is looking very positive.
In addition experts have now been engaged to contribute to a substantial submission that is being prepared, addressing the development application for the Oval Car Park. (Submissions close June 17, 2016 and can be sent to email@example.com)
A Public Meeting is being organised for Sunday 5 June, 2pm at the St Mary’s Parish Hall, corner Raglan and Whistler Streets, Manly. This will provide the opportunity for residents and concerned locals to hear first-hand from leading experts on the issues of flooding, traffic, heritage and why a car park in this location simply won’t work.
In addition to very generous donations from our local residents, the business community has now come on board following a briefing meeting last week. It is anticipated that $40,000.00 will need to be raised. The Fighting Fund has already raised around $20,000. Please support the campaign by donating at www.savemanlyoval.com.au
Representation has also been made to the newly appointed Administrator of the Northern Beaches Council.
The Alliance continues to grow in support. We can still stop this crazy plan!
