Friends of Glenlee (FoG) held their AGM on 31 July to elect a new committee and discuss how to progress the campaign to preserve Glenlee. In this discussion on preserving Glenlee, the following points were made:
* the need for Council to take further steps to acquire Glenlee and to set aside funding to do so. FoG would pursue funding for the Peakhurst Hub;
* while Council had been unanimous in support of Glenlee, it had taken no action. It was agreed that Council should pursue grants. Friends of Glenlee should be part of the meeting with the Environment Minister;
* the Minister should be asked to enact the Heritage Act to allow access to the Glenlee site.
It was also agreed that the Friends of Glenlee complete a NPWS form nominating Glenlee as a national park. The form can be found here.
A comprehensive annual report on FoG’s past year’s activites can be found here.
GRC has also received a letter from the Minister for the Environment.
