The condition of the environment of Point Cartwright Reserve has been deteriorating drastically over recent years, and now Council has commenced a Master Plan study and a review of the Town Plan which will determine the future of the reserve.


To protect Point Cartwright Reserve from future development, keep it a natural place and prevent further degradation of the Reserve, we all need to tell Council what we want for the future.


The best way to protect Point Cartwright’s future is to ask Council to manage the reserve as a conservation park and change the land use zoning to Environmental Management and Conservation.
