The Powerful Owl (Ninox strenua) in Arcadia Park has been registered in the NSW State Government’s BioNet Database. Thanks to Elaine for the beautiful picture and for registering this magnificent creature.
Open Newcastle held its first public rally yesterday (April 13, 2019) in Mosbri Crescent, The Hill yesterday to air concerns about a proposed development on the old NBN Television Studio site. Open Newcastle convenors were really appreciative of those who took the time to attend yesterday’s protest meeting in Mosbri Crescent and air their concerns. There were around 100 people joining us to hear about how we ended up with a proposal for 172 dwellings and a nine storey tower, what the impacts will be on surrounding areas, and what we can do about it.
A nine-storey (172 dwelling) development on the old NBN television studios at 11-17 Mosbri Crescent, the Hill threatens our beautiful Arcadia Park, the adjacent heritage conservation zone, and our neighbourhood. On Saturday 13 April 2019, residents of The Hill and concerned friends will meet to discuss the Crescent Newcastle proposal for the site, and the risks the development presents.
