I suggest you read the following Batemans Bay post articles which gives a good summary of the meeting.
Councillors ultimately ignored the requests to postpone the decision so the community could have more than 2 days to consider these major changes. They did however agree to hold 2 additional public meetings so that residents can meet with the Planners from council who wrote the Planning Proposal. This will occur while the Proposal is being approved in Sydney by the NSW Planning Minister. The Councillors also agreed to extend the formal community consultation period to 42 days once the Gateway Determination plan is approved by the Minister of Planning.
We have organised a special Community Association Meeting for Thursday 16th July 7pm to be held at Broulee Public School (we decided to wait until after the School Holidays to hold the meeting). Council planners will attend this meeting and will be there to answer your questions regarding the development and the process moving forward.
In the other item from Tuesdays Council Meeting to effect Broulee and Mossy Point residents, the Council also passed a motion to accept the tender from NELMAC Pty Ltd for construction of the new bridge at Candlagan Creek.
