In Oyster Bay NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 159 Oyster Bay Road Oyster Bay NSW 2225:

L Simpson commented

If people do a Search under Oyster Bay by the EPA the BAY is badly POLLUTED with HEAVY METALS. Definitely no swimming or Fishing. The more there is Development in Oyster Bay, the more TOXIC chemicals (used in Development of Buildings) only adds to the mess Oyster Bay has become. Sydney Harbour Waters have been cleaned up. Oyster Bay has been languishing for years & years in its POLLUTED condition. EPA, Council, State Government just turn a blind eye to the Heavy Metal Pollution..the Bay is almost dead in some areas. People/Locals killed off all the Mangroves that once were all around the Bay (Oyster Bay, Kareela, Como, Sylvania etc). The Mangroves acted as a Filtration System for the Pollution & a Nursery for small & vulnerable Crustaceans, Fish & Water Birds, all that remains is a very sick Bay. Gymea Bay, Lilli Pilli, Dolans Bay, CaringbH Siuth, Yowie Bay...these suburbs use to be magnificent. Eucalyptus, Bushland & Wildlife. Now the areas are lined with Multi Million Dollar sterile Houses. Native Trees & Wildlife have died...due to loss of habitat & food source....hardly anyone cares about the once beautiful areas along the George's & Port Hacking Rivers. I don't want our Shire to end up the way the Northern side of the George's River has become.....houses everywhere along the River so ugly.....expensive Real Estate but.....so horrible to see....progress comes with a terrible burden....mainly destruction!
