Sandon Point: The fight continues

Issue 

WOLLONGONG — Six-hundred residents, unionists and environmentalists voted at a September 29 protest to keep the pressure on to preserve the Sandon Point wetlands. The rally was called by the Northern Illawarra Residents Action Group in response the Land and Environment Court decision to allow stages 2-6 of an upmarket housing development to be built on the site.
