Come one, come all. Don’t forget our next general meeting is this Saturday. 12th June, Saturday, Yulunga Hall 3pm
Endeavour Energy has commenced post bushfire vegetation clearing in earnest along Bendalong Rd, and we appreciate these works are now highly visible, and are impactful to the community. We are applying an unprecedented level of scrutiny and due diligence to these works, which are being undertaken in keeping with NPWS approvals. We have met on site several times with community representatives, and with NPWS to ensure works progress as approved and only as required. We will keep our promise to the Manyana community to only remove vegetation that represents a real risk to public safety and to the reliable supply of power.
This has been referred by the proponent to the Federal Department of Agriculture Water and Environment public notices : EPBC Act Public Notices : Invitation for public comment on referral.

In an effort to reduce the duration of general meetings, the RHVA executive has resolved that reports from executive committee members and the Yulunga Reserve Committee will be placed on the website one week before the next general meeting. This will allow people to familiarise themselves with the issues in advance and ask questions at the meeting, without time having to be spent on presentation of the report.

A team of researchers at The Australian National University are conducting a survey to understand the past and present impact of bushfires and smoke on health, wellbeing, and lifestyle. We need to hear from as many Australians as possible, both with and without bushfire experience. Your participation will help identify how to support and protect the well-being of Australians when faced with future bushfires. You could also win a $50 Prezzee card!
For more information, and to take the survey, please head to the Australian National University website.

After the summer fires ripped through and wiped out the access to Flatrock and Dee Beach we are happy to let you guys know, the beach is back and open for business. Stairs and access to both beaches are now complete.
The new speed zone on Bendalong road has come into play.
This came about from a motion put forward buy Lex Frew about 3 years ago and supported by those present as he was concerned about the devastation of wild life on the road. Sadly still happening today as the dead wombats laying on the side of the road are a testament to that.
STEPS AT DEE BEACH AND FLAT ROCK
Council has informed that these will be replaced with work scheduled to begin this week.
A message from Manyana Matters
YOU ARE INVITED TO STAND UP FOR THE ENVIRONMENT THIS SATURDAY,
Yulunga Reserve, Sunset Strip, Manyana – 10am
We have a plan so humor us and BRING A SURFBOARD. Alternatively, bring a push bike and bike lock. (Trust us on this, okay?) All will be revealed on the day. We’re going to have some fun.
This is a Covid-cool and family-friendly event. It goes without saying, wear or bring a protest sign. Dress the little ones in characters from the Aussie bush.
Why are we holding this event? Just take a look at the map of how little unburnt land surrounds Manyana! It’s time to stand up and send a loud message to our Government that we won’t tolerate any further destruction to the environment.
The developer’s consultant has advised Council that, “site set up (fencing, site sheds etc) has been provisionally programmed for 4 May 2020 and commencement of vegetation clearing on 7 May 2020.”
Senior management notified Councillors to make them aware of the imminent commencement of works.
May the 4th be with us…..
At 8 am the local community were lining up to get their clean up Australia Day bags. After the devastating fires came through I was unsure how much rubbish would actually collect. The kids and I first started at the Green Island track and I was happy to say we only found 5 pieces of rubbish and a pair of old broken crutches… With our empty bag we drove back to Bendalong to North Inyada Beach where there were already volunteers picking up rubbish. After the fire ripped through we were able to go quite deep into the bush and we filled bags and bags of empty beer bottles. On behalf of the RHVA Thanks to everyone who filled a bag (or bags).
