Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Coming out of the Cave

It was 2018, and in this crisis we witnessed the best that the world can be.

F***ked

Simon Kofe, foreign minister for the small Pacific nation of Tuvalu, brought a slice of reality to the COP26...

Our recent success was founded on the failure of the minister and the Newcastle City Council to fulfill their public law obligations.

Procedural omissions by the Newcastle Council in consenting to the DA were not contested, and therefore received no ruling, because both the Plan of Management and the DA were declared invalid.

I have been contacted by groups from Wollongong, Paramatta and Raymond Terrace who are all having the same fight.

Friends of King Edward Park would like to wish the Brunswick Heads’ Foreshore Protection Group, the strength and endurance and local support to do the job.
