  • Freeway Sound barriers to enable housing;
  • More sewerage into Hawkesbury
  • Loss of views and amenity
  • Loss  of Heritage Values.

Save Peat Island and Pick Your Future

Original Peat Island 4945834-3x2-700x467Rabbit Island 1900Background;

Peat Island was originally established as a hospital for mental health patients. It has been closed for 5 years and the land is now being considered for other uses.

CEN supports:

  • Aesthetic of the Hawkesbury Valley to be maintained;
  • Public Use and Access Improved.

For Example:
The western area should be for day-trippers to stay at (picnic, walks, etc. places to buy food and for large numbers to move through, on to the river and the National Parks. There would be opportunity for basic waterfront camping and heritage buildings would hold displays on National Parks, Hospital and Tourism.”
