A community approach to kids’ mental health

Is your local physiotherapist informed about the impacts of natural-disaster-related trauma on 8 to 12-year-olds?

Yes indeed Bayside Brunswick Heads has been given a bit of our green space back.

Yes this bit of green space was not large enough to fit more than four to five containers on it.

As such it was virtually cost-prohibitive to connect it to all services. Now green space has largely been confiscated by Resilience NSW, namely our children’s park.

It was already small in comparison to any other green areas for the shire. It was also tagged for use by the Onivia boarding house.

The huge lack of green space as per SEPP affordable boarding house regulations along with the lack of public transport certainly featured in my submission to Council opposing the boarding house.

I have concerns about the future of Bayside with many more residences planned by two other developers – more than triple our current homes.

I purchased here knowing more development would be possible along with the proposed community shopping/professional land, but that shops/office land has now been approved as the boarding house by BSC councillors.

Hopefully this can be rectified as our community is a distance from economic shopping centres and available professional services.
