Last year, the Tasmanian State Government announced the preferred site for the new maximum security Northern Regional Prison is at Birralee Road, Westbury (see the aerial photo below).
The community action group, Westbury Region Against the Prison Inc (WRAP), was subsequently formed.
WRAP is opposed to a prison being built close to any existing community where the majority of people don't want it.
Westbury has much to offer visitors and residents.
This is why we feel so strongly about stopping the prison from being built in our town.
There have been a number of myths floating around since the preferred site for the prison was announced. We dispel some of these.
WRAP has T-shirts, stickers and signs available to purchase. Help boost WRAP's funds and show your support to save historic Westbury.
