I have been observing the issues and concerns arising with the DA on exhibition for 92 Smith Street, Broulee. Thank you for the invitation to your community meeting. I will be coming tomorrow.
I thought it would be useful to forward a copy of replies to a series of questions just sent to Councillors. I look forward to meeting you tomorrow evening and hope the questions and answers may address some queries you may have received.
I am new, so still getting a feel for these matters here in the Shire. Some of the questions indicate a bit of a misunderstanding of the actual process (e.g. Council cannot just reject an application because we, or the community, don’t like it. There is a process we must follow.).
Also this issue of people not being informed. Council writes to the registered address, of adjacent and adjoining properties, where the rates go to. I get a feeling, and I may be wrong, that people are suggesting Council is keeping them in the dark. That is not the case.
Don’t hesitate to call me for any clarification. See you tomorrow.
