More trips to explain Halls Creek
MORE information cruises to the proposed Halls Creek development area are being planned after more than 50 people representing 26 community organisations visited the area on Monday.
Sunshine Coast Environment Council with the support of Caloundra Cruises hosted Monday's event which sailed past the massive Caloundra South development to the Halls Creek area Stockland also wants to develop.
"After the Halls Creek community forum it was clear that there was a lot of interest but it was equally clear that a lot of people have a limited understanding of the issue,'' SCEC executive officer Wiebe ter Bals said.
"Rotaries, P&Cs, cricket clubs, churches, men's sheds and Probus clubs would not normally get involved in a planning issue such as this, and that's fine, that is not their role in the community."
The Newman Government earlier this year demanded Sunshine Coast Council retain Halls Creek as an investigation area for future urban development despite a push to exclude it from the new town plan.
Further tours will be organised depending on demand. Contact SCEC on 5441 5747 to secure a place.
