Woy woy, New South Wales


I am a 36 year old woman who was lucky enough to have grown up on the
central coast- lucky because I was surrounded by beautiful beaches,
breathtaking Bushland, waterfalls, forests, and wildlife.
I am saddened though to see the coast of my childhood is rapidly being
built over with factories and houses that have no desire to fit in to
the landscape- trees are felled, habitats are ruined and what was once
an oasis of Australian wildlife has now become a lifeless concrete
It is bad enough that there is no thought put into how these
developments fail to work with the existing ecosystem but when a
suburb is knowingly destroyed and relplaced with an ugly, noisy site
that knowingly poisons the air its community breathe and the water
they drink- it's criminal and can't be allowed.
Forethought must be used and we can't let money talk over health,
beautiful environs and the longevity of both.
