"The community support for the campaign to have self-assessment removed from the NSW 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Code has been overwhelming. The letter sent to the Ministers last week was co-signed by over 55 groups.

Now, with only weeks expected until the outcome of the review into the Code, we are calling on anyone who values our wilderness areas and urban environments to make one final effort to ensure that this review delivers the outcome NSW residents want and deserve.

Could you ask your members of "Greenwich Community Association" to contact your local MP and ask them to make a representation to Minister David Elliott about their position on 10/50 and the associated review. 

It is as simple as sending an email with the attached PDF brief to your MP. We have also attached a template for a cover letter, which people can use or amend."

Rental opportunity:
The Scouts are keen for the facility to be used as often as possible so are looking for similar community based groups who may like to share the rental of the hall with these other groups.
