Surrounded by bush and with the waters of Port Stephens lapping at our shores, the villages of North Arm Cove, Carrington, Bundabah and Pindimar are definitely great places to live. As residents, how much do we value what we have now? What sorts of future developments are appropriate for the villages themselves and the surrounding areas?

As the vigorous response to the 2017 Quarry proposal showed, there are a great many locals who...
