REGARDLESS of the council deciding it wants Noosa to stay part of a regional council, the Free Noosa campaign is rolling back out on "the road" again with three town hall style meetings starting this Thursday in Cooroy to help build local momentum for a spilt.
Sunshine Coast Council last Thursday responded to a request from Boundary Commissioner Colin Meng to formally decide where it stands on the issue.
Noosa councillors Russell Green and Tony Wellington have always been in favour of de-amalgamation with Cr Green declaring he would be interested in running for mayor of a new Noosa.
Mayor Mark Jamieson, who has always preferred a regional set up but declared before the April election that he would not stand in the way of Noosa breaking free, said the majority of councillors favoured a unified local government body.
Cr Jamieson said the council would help Mr Meng where it could as part of the State Government process of a boundary review. It was important for the Government to make sound decisions based on all the necessary information.
Free Noosa chairman Noel Playford says the meetings were: "an important opportunity for people to hear the latest on progress towards de-amalgamation and also to give their own input to what sort of new Noosa Council we would like working for us".
The Free Noosa meetings are scheduled for: Cooroy CWA Hall 7pm Thursday October 25, Noosaville Christian Outreach Centre 7pm Wednesday October 31 and Pomona Memorial Hall 10am Saturday November 3.
