Shed lo­ca­tion is the is­sue

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

AS MOST of the com­mu­nity would be aware the Isis Dis­trict State High School com­mu­nity is cur­rently sub­mit­ting ob­jec­tions to the Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil re­gard­ing a devel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion at 3A North St. This ap­pli­ca­tion is for the con­struc­tion of a Men’s Shed on land cur­rently used by the high school’s agri­cul­tural pro­gram.

I am more than happy to dis­cuss th­ese is­sues fur­ther with any­one who would like clar­i­fi­ca­tion at a suit­able lo­ca­tion and in a civilised
