Join the Castlecrag Conservation Society in The Domain from 12.30pm – look out for our banner.

Climate Change Rally

The Climate Change Rally will be on Sunday November 29th beginning at 1.00pm with the meeting place in the City to still be communicated to everyone. This is an important rally that will support the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris from 30 November to 11 December.

The Conference objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world.

By showing our support in Sydney to this process – we can join with many globally and make a difference.

Two groups are forming to support the rally from Castlecrag – Bushcarers and CCS Members and friends. You are invited to participate and network your support for this event.

Stop the 10/50 Chop

The 10/50 rule was passed in State Parliament in August last year. the most recent review of the legislation took into account more than 3,500 submissions from individuals and interested parties. After 10 months of consideration the thirty recommendations to come out of the review do little to wrest back control to council authorities.  РTHE CRAG Newsletter Sept 2015

The Castlecrag Conservation Society will continue its campaign for tighter control of all mature tree felling.

During the campaign for changes to this environmentally damaging rule РAlly Selby produced a short film about the effects of the rule in Castlecrag which contains interviews of Mayor Gail Giles Gidney and the CCS President Mark Crew. It can be viewed by clicking on the link below;
