Newport Needs You

Over the past few weeks our Community has rallied together with a singular focus – to stop the inappropriate proposal of two Towers at Newport Marina.  A proposal that threatens our neighbourhood and lifestyle.

We have made phone calls, sent letters and emails, made visits and ensured that everyone we know is aware of how we feel.

Our actions have ensured that every Government decision maker on the Redcliffe Peninsula knows that this community of Newport is against changing Newport Marina into a multi tower edifice.

Our combined voices are being heard.

The Developer has employed a Marketing firm to bombard the community with stories of what a wonderful proposal he has.  Promises of glorious moments spent at the two Towers – a Mecca for every tourist.  Being practical people and not without a sense of humour, we have dealt with these claims with aplomb and at times, scintillating observations.

We have been threatened with toxic and heavy industry in the place of the Towers.  We have dealt with those claims by thoroughly investigating the zoning regulations for Marine Industry – laying false, the claims made by the Developer.  Time and again we have dealt with falsities and threats.

Redcliffe Peninsula residents have joined our voice.  They know that our battle is an important one, not only for the future of Newport, but also for the whole peninsula.

On Tuesday, 11 September at 7.30pm, we will meet together as the Newport Action Group, finalising our campaign to stop this development. 

An update and an overview of the most important part of our campaign – preparing submissions for Council will be the focus of the meeting and assistance will be available.

The meeting will be held at Waters Edge (formerly Sunset Blue), Bird O’Passage Parade, Scarborough – next to Morgans Seafood.

There is a lift available for those members who prefer not to use the stairs.

We are looking forward to sharing this most important evening with you.
