Over the last few weeks the oyster posts on OL86/140 were removed by the lessee. However, a few posts were missed so be very cautious navigating in the area.

The posts marking the navigation channel and the boundaries of the lease are still present.

NSW DPI will carry out their triennial inspection at the end of May.

They've gone! The ugly encrusted and abandoned posts in oyster lease OL86/140 have at last been removed. The lease boundary posts remain but now the water is largely clear of an environmental and visual blight that has taken a very long time for Fisheries to acknowledge and addess.

We don't know exactly what happens next. We are led to believe that the lease holder may try a suspended net system for oyster farming. Whatever, we trust that any future installation is designed to leave a less damaging environmental foot print. It will be interesting to see if water flow...

Not so many months ago and in the times of the Great Lakes Council, a considerable sum was spent conducting a survey of storm water drainage in our village.

NACRA has done a new survey of the current drainage situation and the report can be seen below.

History

As we continue to campaign for improved telecommunications in the Cove it is worth remembering that this local struggle began many years ago. But before relating a bit of that history here is a quick question:

How many permanent residents do you think would have lived in our North Arm Cove village back in 1968?

10? 20? 50? 100? more?
