Crowds stay away
IWAS genuinely surprised at the small number of people who attended Tuesday night’s Community Information Session about the Bundaberg Regional Council’s proposed planning scheme.
This is the document that forms the framework of what BRC works towards for the next few decades, and our areas are part of that.
I know there has already been a community group meeting with Childers Chamber of Commerce (October 7) and the Woodgate and District Residents Association (October 11), but where was everyone?
Tuesday nights aren’t the best for everyone, and there are people who have been to so many of these meetings they could just about present it themselves.
But when you have an equal representation from BRC as you do locals (six BRC members, including Cr Ross Sommerfield, versus seven community members) it’s a little disappointing.
I want to know what the community thinks of the planning scheme.
What do you want to see in your area? What does future Childers, Apple Tree Creek, Buxton or Woodgate look like in your eyes?
