Wingham Brush, as stated by Dr John Stockard, is the most recognisable and well known feature of our town. The efforts of the Wingham Brush Regeneration team over many years has ensured that this rare example of rainforest has survived. The introduction of “free camping”, and all that this practice brings, would seem to me to be a retrograde step. Any benefit that may be gained by local business operators of Wingham, would, I suggest, be outweighed by the potential degradation of the Wingham Brush and surrounding area. Apart from grocery items and fuel, there would be few businesses which would likely benefit from permitting “free parking” in the Wingham Brush area. We, as a community, should all question the proposal to further “develop” the Wingham Brush area however well meaning the plans of WAG may be.
