Stories about "Black Rocks sportsfield":
Menkit Prince, Uki. Locals walking in the Black Rocks sports field came across a very strange sight recently: dozens of teddy bears tied to trees near where the Pottsville & District Men’s Shed is proposed to be built.
David Norris, president, Threatened Species Conservation Society, Pottsville. The Black Rocks sports field has serious safety issues. It is in an isolated location 300 metres within bushland, and is a haven for those with ill-intent, as has been demonstrated by ongoing vandalism, obscene graffiti, break and enter, marijuana cultivation and hooning at this site.
David Norris , president Threatened Species Conservation Society Inc , Pottsville. In his email dated 30 September, renowned ecologist and koala expert, Dr Steve Phillips stated: 'The increasing development pressure being placed on the Sports Field (Black Rocks) locality is paramount to an abrogation of Council's responsibilities to Koala conservation in the Tweed'.
David Norris, Pottsville. According to the development application that Tweed Shire Council has prepared for a Men's Shed at the Black Rocks sports field, members of the Pottsville and District Men's Shed Inc have refused to progress an application for a permanent site at the Barry Sheppard sports field (Hastings Point) simply because they refuse to go there.
Tweed shire councillor Barry Longland has stuck by his controversial move to push for koala-protection gates at the Blacks Rocks sports field south of Pottsville to be replaced by a grid, which has angered koala campaigners and led to three public protests in the past week.
David Norris, Pottsville. Under Tweed Shire Council's watch, over the last decade we have lost 50 per cent of our Tweed coast koalas. With an estimated 110 to 140 koalas left, there is no room for complacency if we are not only going to maintain koala residency, but also to increase numbers to a viable population size.
Lyn Dickinson, Pottsville. According to the Australian Men's Shed Association, one major objective is 'to advance the health and well-being of their male members and to encourage social inclusion'. There is an ideal place for this to happen – it is located at the most southern end of the Pottsville markets.
