Campaign Update

Thank you to those members of our community who have been writing to our Councillors and Politicians, your voice is having a significant impact.

This week is going to be a busy one.

NAG will be speaking to the MBRC Council Meeting on Tuesday morning in Redcliffe, outlining our opposition to the Newport Marina development. We will be highlighting the negative impacts on our community and the inappropriateness of the proposal.

We will also be arranging meetings with our Political leaders and offering them an opportunity to meet you and hear your concerns. We will let you know as soon as a date is confirmed and encourage you to attend to make your voices heard.

Please keep sending in your comments about the proposal, they have been very helpful!

Over the last weeks, NAG has held discussions with a number of people involved in development in the area.

From these discussions one thing has been made clear. If this proposal is approved, it will encourage other developers to lodge Applications for multi-level buildings. Our fight is an important one!

Please keep spreading the word and talking about this. Direct friends to our website and/or Facebook page to stay informed.

Following our Press Release on the 19 August 2018 our members have advised us that Mr Kindred has now approached some of them, organising a number of meetings at his office.

Unfortunately these can only be sales/information meetings, as the Development Application has already been lodged. The time for genuine community consultation was prior to this happening.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with our letterbox drop. Many hands made light work!
