Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE $500,000 an­nounced in the bud­get for the Port Dou­glas mas­ter plan im­ple­men­ta­tion will see the con­tin­u­a­tion of work al­ready be­gun.

With the de­mo­li­tion of the water­front houses, the money will go to­wards cre­at­ing a grassed area with land­scap­ing, ir­ri­ga­tion and some seat­ing for the pub­lic.

Mayor Bob Man­ning said the restora­tion of the water­front land in prepa­ra­tion for the fu­ture de­vel­op­ment will be com­pleted be­fore the Novem­ber to­tal so­lar eclipse event.

“It should be done within the next two to three months and is cer­tainly flagged ready for pub­lic use in time for the so­lar eclipse,” he said.

Division 10 coun­cil­lor Ju­lia Leu said she will be fight­ing for ad­di­tional fund­ing in the quar­terly re­views of the bud­get to fur­ther im­ple­ment the mas­ter plan.
