CRC officer to address Historical Society
DEBBIE Wellington, an officer with the Planning Strategies branch of the Cairns Regional Council, is the guest speaker at the Douglas Shire Historical Society meeting on October 14. The CRC has prepared a new draft planning scheme, and its efforts will be transferred to the Douglas Shire Council after January 1. For many years the DSC’s Cultural Policy needed updating and the CRC has been attending to this, commissioning the Douglas Heritage Study. This study has been used to inform the new draft planning scheme. Members and non-members are invited to attend on October 14 at 2pm at the Mossman Community Centre.
