More than three months ago the North Arm Cove Hall was filled to overflowing with people from Bundabah, Pindimar and the Cove as well as places further afield. They were there to hear about a Development Application submitted to Council by LDF Enterprises for a private quarry to be located close to the southern boundary of Bundabah. Following that meeting, community members from across the area submitted a record number of objections to the quarry

We understand that there is to be a second directions hearing in the Land and Environment Court on September 1st. This is platform provided for the two parties, the owner of the land and the MidCoast Council, to convince the court that they have reconciled differences and agreed to a path toward future co-operation so that further legal process is not necessary.

As you will know, on the insistance of the court, the owner, Mr Lee, appointed a 'go-between' to take a negotiation role in this process. He has been familiarising himself with the history non-compliances and regulatory abuses...

Some positive news that this morning (Friday 20 July) Soil Conservation Service has commenced implementation of sediment and erosion control measures on the Fame Cove-Bundabah site. This work is one step in a wider process to address the many significant issues resulting from past actions undertaken on this site. These actions had led to several court actions initiated by Council and State Government departments.

Earlier this month Brett Peterkin, the consultant engaged by the site owner (LDF enterprises) met with representatives from Bundabah, Pindimar and North Arm Cove to explain his role in more detail and the actions being...

It was standing room only at the Community Centre yesterday (Saturday 17 June) for a Public Meeting to discuss the implications of the DA proposal for a private quarry at Bundabah. Well in excess of a hundred people from the Cove, Bundabah, Pindimar and further afield listened intently to a detailed presentation of the history of the site and the very concerning discrepancies between the content of the DA proposal and the known facts.

After an extensive Q&A-and-comments session, a sea of hands showed overwhelming support for a motion that this meeting calls upon Council to reject Development Application...

Quarry Threat Casts Shadow Over Local Villages

MidCoast Council last week put on exhibition DA269/2017 which is for a rock mining quarry on the iconic Fame Cove property bordering Port Stephens.

This quarry may require the services each year of up to 5000 truck movements and all the necessary industrial equipment to process up to 25,000 cu m of ultra hard volcanic Andesite rock.

The DA does not explain exactly how the rock will be extracted or crushed except that there will be no blasting. We are told there will be no noise or vibration, but not...

An intense legal battle between the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and Mr Phillip Dong Fang Lee’s LDF Enterprise, the owner of an iconic 409-hectare waterfront site on Port Stephens’ northern shore, has resulted in defeat for Mr Lee.

At issue was the right of the OEH to enter the site, which stretches from Bundabah, to Fame Cove, to investigate the reported existence of Aboriginal heritage sites, including middens, and, if confirmed, to assess whether they have been damaged.

This assessment process was part of a wider effort by the NSW Government and MidCoast Council to...

The owner of the iconic Fame Cove/North Arm Cove waterfront site in Port Stephens will front the Land and Environment Court again next Friday (24 March) to face continuing charges of causing serious environmental damage and carrying out unauthorised work.

The court appearance follows a previous court decision imposing a four month stop work order on the site. This was in response to investigations by Mid Coast Council that revealed prolific devastation due to work being carried out beyond development consent, without permit or consultation.
