The Saving of Fairview
Fairview is an historic homestead on a property situated in an area of The Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia, called Dubbo Gully, not far from Lower Mangrove. The property is of major significance to the history of the area, with one building there dating back 150 years. It is owned by Gosford City Council, being purchased by them some years ago in readiness for the construction of a major water storage dam just downstream of the house. The location for the dam was subsequently moved upstream and the house still stands as it was then, deteriorating further every year. Those familiar with the heritage want the property saved and restored to its former glory, but as of May 2010, Gosford City Council is yet to give approval with several reasons being given for why it will not be possible to do so. Please make use of this petition to let those in power know that it is imperative that this property be saved. If you are not familiar with the property, please do everything you can to go there and check out the Facebook page The Saving of Fairview and check out the video I produced for the cause. It is certainly worth your while going there and experiencing the area for yourself, but of course the video comes in at a close second. I am sure you will understand immediately why the property MUST be saved. Not only is it of historical importance, it is without doubt one of the most beautiful areas of The Central Coast.
