Dis­ap­pointed at ag land loss

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

IT IS with great dis­ap­point­ment that the de­vel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion for the con­struc­tion of the Childers Men’s Shed on land in North St cur­rently used by the high school was ap­proved by the Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment com­mit­tee, de­spite a huge show­ing of sup­port by the com­mu­nity for the high school ag pro­gram. Thirty-eight ob­jec­tions (although only 32 were ac­cepted) and only one let­ter of sup­port was re­ceived by coun­cil. May I take this op­por­tu­nity to thank all those who sup­ported the school in their fight to keep the ag plot by sub­mit­ting an ob­jec­tion. I un­der­stand the rec­om­men­da­tion by the plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment com­mit­tee still must go be­fore a full coun­cil meet­ing be­fore a fi­nal de­ci­sion is an­nounced. As I have stated be­fore, I be­lieve the Men’s Shed is a wor­thy as­set for Childers, but sadly not at the ex­pense of the high school agri­cul­ture pro­gram. It is a sad day for Childers when one com­mu­nity group is forced to go head to head with another, when I’m sure there could have been a bet­ter out­come that would have suit­ably ac­com­mo­dated ev­ery­one.
