Welcome to the Cape Paterson Residents and Ratepayers Association

We are a group of residents, ratepayers and members who have come together to achieve mutually held goals built around the protection and betterment of Cape Paterson.
NORTHERN DEVELOPMENT

Suburban development and coastal ecology don’t go together!

Without consultation and ignoring reports they commissioned themselves, the State Government extended Cape Paterson’s Northern Boundary.

This means the area north of Seaward Drive is open to MASSIVE overdevelopment. Currently there is a proposal for the addition of over 900 new houses, more than doubling the current size of Cape Paterson. It’s just too much.
